Suspects Sought in Armed Robbery of Sunoco Gas Station

Montgomery County Police are asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects caught on surveillance video during a June 22 armed robbery of the Sunoco gas station in the 8300 block of Colesville Road in downtown Silver Spring.

“At approximately 1:13 p.m. [on June 22], 3rd District officers responded to the location for the report of an armed robbery,” MCPD said in a news release. “The investigation by detectives has determined that two unknown Black male suspects entered the Sunoco and used the lottery machine. After a few minutes, they requested assistance from the employee, requiring him to leave the secured cashier area and enter the main store. When the employee opened the door, the suspects forced their way into the secured cashier area and displayed a handgun. The suspects tied the employee’s hands and then stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the registers before fleeing the scene on foot.”

MCPD said that the suspect who displayed the handgun is described as a Black male, approximately 40 years old, with a stocky build. He wore a red baseball hat, white t-shirt, and blue jeans with rips in the knees.

The second suspect is described as a Black male, approximately 40 years old, with a medium build. This suspect wore a black Nike sweatband around a gray and white baseball cap, a white t-shirt, and black shorts.
