From Maryland State Police:
Over the past several days business establishments in the Edgewood area have experienced four robberies that appeared to be committed by the same individual. The Friendly’s Restaurant, 1400 block of Pulaski Hwy, Edgewood, Md. was struck on two separate days: Monday, November 10 in the morning and again on Tuesday, November 11 at around 10:00 p.m. After the second Friendly’s robbery it appeared that the same suspect committed another robbery at the CVS Pharmacy, which is in close proximity to the Friendly’s. The suspect was then described as a B/M, around 40 – 50 yoa, with dark/gray hair wearing a hooded brown jacket and black pants.
On Friday, November 13, at about 8:40 p.m. it appears the same suspect robbed the Walgreen’s Pharmacy located at 1930 Pulaski Hwy, Edgewood, Md. On this occasion the suspect was wearing a brown hooded sport jacket with a distinctive thick black stripe along the sides, and blue jeans. The suspect is again described as being between 40 – 50 yoa, with dark/salt-pepper hair, possibly facial hair and glasses.
A common practice for the suspect is to have in his possession a phone and possibly pretending to be involved in a conversation with his hood extended over his head. The suspect will then approach the cashier, regardless if there are other patrons in the establishment, and demand cash. During the last robbery the suspect actually pulled his jacket up and displayed the butt of a handgun to the cashier.
