Suspect wanted for Dollar General armed robbery
— Police are searching for the man who committed an armed robbery at the Dollar General on Conowingo Road.
On Friday morning, a man brandishing a handgun asked for money and then stole an undisclosed amount from the business, said Cpl. Needham with the Maryland State Police North East Barrack. The same Dollar General was also robbed in February.
No one was injured during the Friday incident, Needham added.
The suspect is a male between 25 and 30 years old with a thin build, according to police. The suspect was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, black hat and blue jeans, according to police.
Needham said there could be a connection between the suspect in this incident and the suspect who robbed the High’s Dairy Store on Blue Ball and Route 273 last week. In that robbery, police reported a man of similar description approached the counter, displayed “a snub-nosed revolver” and demanded money.
Anyone with information that might help detectives identify the armed robbery suspect is asked to call the North East barrack at 410-996-7800.
