From the Aberdeen Police Department:
On Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 at approximately 12:00 AM, officers from the Aberdeen Police Department were dispatched to 739 W. Bel Air Avenue, the 7-Eleven, in reference to an Armed Robbery.
Preliminary investigation revealed that two subjects entered the store and confronted the cashiers with knives while demanding money. The cashiers turned over an undisclosed amount of cash and the subjects before the two fled the area on foot.
A subsequent K9 track led officers through the Hill Side Terrace Apartments which is located at 731 W. Bel Air Avenue and to the rear parking lot of the Hilton Garden Inn located at 1050 Beards Hill Road.
If anyone has information virtual to this investigation, please contact Detective/Sergeant Thaddeus Tomlinson of the Aberdeen Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division by calling (410) 272-2121, extension #138 or by e-mail, ttomlinson@aberdeenmd.
No Second Amendment enthusiast in the store to save the day?

For a knife attack? triggered much?
No, I was making joke. Especially about the gun enthusiast.
I totally agree and it makes perfect sense that a firearm is not needed in a knife attack.
I hope there’s never a Supreme Court ruling that requires states to give everyone who applies and doesn’t have a firearm disqualifyer, a handgun carry permit….
…. If it ever comes to that I honestly believe there will be a lot of incidents where guns will negligently fire as people who otherwise could have never obtained a carry permit will all of a sudden have one and start to mishandle them out in public.

“A firearm is not needed in a knife attack” Have you ever heard of the 27 foot rule as it pertains to edged weapon attacks. You liberal couch potatoes make laugh.
Obviously I haven’t heard of the “27 foot rule.” Tell it again, bro.
Why am I liberal? Because I don’t care for guns? That’s automatic?
I’m not affiliated with any political party, I’m just an American.
I think political issues is mentally retarding this entire country. Everything is a political issue followed by a personal insult.
Keep dreaming about guns, because in this state, the only thing most people can do with them is buy them and keep them locked up in their house.
Ted is right. In this State you will never have a large population of the public carrying guns and this is directly because Maryland is a fascist State that has diminished and abrogated just about every right due to the Democratic party’s unconstitutional rule. Maryland is basically a slave State. You are a slave to the Maryland government. Comply or be destroyed. They have literally turned the law enforcement of Maryland into a terrorist regime to enforce the policies of a completely treasonous legislature and court system, that should either be reformed or destroyed in its entirety. I am greatly surprised that someone hasn’t invoked Article 6 and demanded to instill a new government in this State
Well, I’m glad that our laws are based on facts and not your “honest beliefs.”
Perhaps you should take a look at the 45 states that do issue concealed carry permits to all who qualify, or perhaps the 13 or so who actually follow the US Constitution and don’t require state residents to even need a permit.
Your honest belief of all kinds of incidents aren’t occurring there are they?
Mike Callahan says
Right to carry States have an increase in violent crime by 13% or more. More access to guns increases more criminal gun violence! Right wing Neanderthals shoot first ask questions later!
The entire report you keep using is skewed. Look at how he calculates the crime rates. He uses Texas, a State with a vast unchecked border to California, a State with a controlled border the entire length of the State. He then uses an algorithm to produce “synthetic data” about other States. This is a left leaning con job done by left leaning scholars at left leaning universities whom are getting the specific results they are looking for by comparing Texas to California. Anyone with a brain would look at a report like this and immediately see that the left leaning professor, at a left leaning school, was looking for a left leaning methodology, to push a left leaning agenda. The report is a fraud just like everything else the Democrats have been pushing for a very long time.
I think you should read this and look at how homicides are on the rise virtually all over, except for places that have an increased police presence. If there was ever an argument for increased law enforcement, it is that just the mere presence of uniformed police causes a lot of violent crime to disappear. I’m not really enthused about living in a police State, but you can’t deny the facts.
I had just left the store 7 minutes before this happened. The swat team was there for hours last night.

Hey kiki i know u lol look at my name lol
Did they use a harpsichord? Because flowers use A1 sauce on dripping.
I have a question. If K-9 units are used to track a suspect, don’t they need a verified scent of the ones whom they are supposed to be tracking? How does anybody know if the K-9 units were actually tracking the suspects and not following the scent of a law abiding citizen to a location? Surely more than the robbers indicated in the article have followed the same path. Someone please enlighten me on how it can be assured that these K-9 units were actually tracking the ones whom they were supposed to be tracking….

Good question. You are correct patrol dogs do not scent discriminate. They basically follow the strongest available scent present. Sometimes that is the scent of the bad guy if you get lucky. Only bloodhounds can scent discriminate. When utilizing a bloodhound you can use an article of clothing or other items associated with the suspect or target individual. Often times if a suspects vehicle has been located the bloodhound will obtain a scent sample from the car seat. Patrol dogs are crossed trained in various disciplines such as aggression work and or the detection of explosives or CDS. In detection work various substances are introduced to the dog in a training scenarios. A reward process is usually the stimulus for success.
Mike Callahan says
Drug sniffing dogs can be corrupted by their handlers !
Yup, but the real issue is how and where they are used….
Open Your Eyes says
I don’t think that the dog can be corrupted but the handlers can corrupt the actual outcomes of the scan process conducted by the animal. Mike I am still not clear what point you are trying to make but whatever. Post after post I am still trying to figure you out. I envision you as a child being the last guy picked for a team during school recess or the guy that routinely was given a “wedgie” by the kids in his gym class. Lol. Keep posting my friend
Although those photos are incredibly grainy I wouldn’t rule out those two being women. The more heavyset one with the hand in pocket just carries like a female and the other one is certainly small enough. I just got this feeling when I looked at it.

Did all you gun nuts pay your NRA dues?
Wow it was robbed again by the same people sounds like a inside job
