Identity Needed for Strong-Arm Robbery Suspect

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of the person pictured in a strong-arm robbery investigation. On Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019 at 3:55 am, the suspect asked for a carton of cigarettes at the Sheetz convenience store in Great Mills. The suspect attempted to take the carton of cigarettes from the cashier, but the cashier retained control of it. The suspect then tried to grab a pack of cigarette lighters, which the cashier retained. The suspect then grabbed a cellphone accessory display and threw it on the floor and fled the store with what appeared to be charging cables. The cashier reported an injury to a hand during the encounter.
