Have you ever seen that movie where a criminal decides to put on a mask and rob the local gas station for some quick cash? Of course, this scene plays out in a number of different movies that have hit the big screen over the years. In the early morning hours of November 9, this scene came to life in Queensbury, New York.
According to CBS6, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a truly chilling armed robbery at a local convenience store. Here are the details. Maybe you can help identify the suspect.
This incident happened shortly after midnight on Wednesday November 9 at the Cumberland Farms location at 410 Quaker Road in Queensbury. Considering that this store closes at midnight, one would assume that the criminal waited until closing time to attempt the robbery.
It will be difficult to identify this suspect as the individual’s features were covered in a bright red winter coat, blue hoodie, red sneakers and a Halloween-style skeleton mask to cover the face.
As you can see from the surveillance image, the suspect is holding what appears to be a handgun. No official word on what the criminal was looking for or what this person left the store with. What we can tell you is that the Warren County Sheriff’s Department is investigating and looking for this individual.
If you have any information that may help solve this crime, please contact the Criminal Investigations Division of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 518-743-2500. You can also leave an anonymous tip if you prefer at 518-761-9800.
