UPDATE (October 3, 2018 10:00 a.m.):

Royal Farm robbery suspectWhile a number of tips were received regarding this armed robber's identity following our original release after he robbed a Royal Farms store in Halethorpe on July 21, none have yielded a positive identification on this suspect. Now he has struck again - at another Royal Farms store in Halethorpe. Police are hoping surveillance images from his most recent crime will finally help to identify this potentially dangerous criminal.

Detectives obtained better images of the armed robber when he struck again on Sunday, September 23. He entered the store at 4308 Washington Boulevard around 5:40 a.m., displayed a firearm to the clerk, and demanded cash. In this case he was caught on camera leaving in a silver crossover type vehicle (pictured below), believed to be an Acura MDX.

This armed robber is described as being a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build and short dark hair. If you recognize this man or have any information on this robbery or his previous robbery (see original release below) call police at 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is currently investigating both robbery cases involving this suspect.

 

Original Release (August 9, 2018 2:04 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect in these surveillance images.

This man, described as a white male about six feet tall with a slender build and short dark hair, entered the Royal Farms store at 4384 Hollins Ferry Road, 21227 on July 21 around 2:38 a.m. He was carrying a long gun and immediately walked right behind the counter to the clerk, taking the entire cash drawer from the register. He was last seen fleeing behind a nearby 7-Eleven store.

Anyone who thinks they recognize this armed robber is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.

Baltimore County Police are attempting to identify this burglar on Baltimore Street.

This brazen criminal struck in the 6000 block of Baltimore Street around 9 O'clock in the morning on July 31. He forced open a rear window to gain entry, taking a sum of cash before leaving the house. This homeowner was able to provide decent surveillance video of the suspect walking through the back yard and peeking in through the sliding glass door. You can watch that video here on our YouTube channel.

If you recognize this burglar or have any additional information on this crime contact police at 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous. The Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit is continuing to investigate this crime.
