Crime hits area Goodwill store, Habitat for Humanity office

Some bad things appear to have happened to some people doing good things in Maryland, where police have recently reported robberies at a Goodwill store in Gaithersburg and a burglary at the Habitat for Humanity in Lexington Park.

Montgomery County police are investigating two armed robberies at the Goodwill store on the 600 block of S. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg.

On Thursday at around 8:41 a.m., police responded to reports of an armed robbery at the store. A male suspect entered the store, demanded cash and fled with an undisclosed amount, police said. No one was injured. The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, around 5' 5" tall and slim in build, wearing a dark jacket.

The same store was hit at around 9 p.m. on Nov. 27, according to police. The crime itself, police said, was executed about the same way.

In this case, the suspect was described as a black male between 24 and 27 years old, 5' 4" to 5' 6" tall, and weighing between 130 and 150 lbs. He had a goatee, police said, and was wearing a white tee shirt, dark jacket, black hat, white tennis shoes amnd blue jeans.

There was bad news at the Patuxent Habitat for Humanity, too, where the Maryland State Police said that an unknown suspect or suspects came inside the facility on S. Coral Dr. in Lexington Park over the weekend -- between 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 5 and 8 a.m. on Dec. 7 -- and took about $280 in cash and a "yellow money bank."
