Masked Man Robs Hamilton Mill Road Chevron
Armed suspect flees with approximately $4,500 in cash.
Gwinnett County Police are searching for a suspect who robbed the Chevron, located at 2800 Hamilton Mill Road, on Oct. 26.
According to police, the clerk was in the process of closing the store for the night when a masked man armed with a semi-automatic pistol entered the business. The suspect demanded that the clerk empty the register and place the contents in a Publix shopping bag. After the clerk complied, the suspect reportedly ordered him to lift the drawer to verify no money remained in the register.
After the suspect fled the business on foot, the clerk called 911. Officers set up a perimeter and called in K-9 and air support, but were unable to locate the robber.
The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5-foot-9, weighing roughly 175 pounds. At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing black mesh shorts with a red stripe, black and red sneakers, and a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head. Store surveillance showed the suspect was also wearing brown gloves and a black stocking cap pulled down over his face. The victim said the mask did not have mouth or eye holes.
The suspect escaped with approximately $4,500 in cash.
The case is listed as active.
