Loudoun robbery suspect sought
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating the armed robbery of the gas station at 13232 James Monroe Hwy.
About 5:30 a.m. Saturday, a dark-complexioned man with a white towel wrapped around his face and a gun in his right hand leapt over the counter at Athey's Getty Mart. He pointed his weapon at a store employee, demanded cash from the register and took an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing in a sedan on Route 15 toward Maryland.
The sheriff’s office has released a video of the robbery, which was recorded on a surveillance camera.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call investigator Mark McCaffrey at 703-777-0475. Anonymous tips can be given to Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. Information provided to the Crime Solvers unit that leads to an arrest and indictment is eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, the sheriff’s office said.
