Detectives from the county’s Major Crimes Division have released surveillance video of two suspects in a commercial armed robbery of a 7-Eleven in the Hillandale area of Silver Spring.
“At approximately 3:44 a.m., 3rd District officers responded to the 10200 block of New Hampshire Ave. for the report of a robbery,” according to a press release.
“The preliminary investigation by detectives has revealed that two masked suspects entered the business,” the release continues.
