Advance Auto Parts Robbed at Gunpoint

An unknown suspect stole money from a safe and fled on foot on Dec. 23.

An unknown suspect robbed Advance Auto Parts Sunday after threatening employees and taking money from the store’s safe.

A man walked into the store, at 11909 Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown, at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 23, brought bottles of oil to the register and told the employees to give him all the money or he would kill them, according to a Baltimore County Police report. He took both victims to the rear of the store and then to the front of the store where the safe was located, and held onto one victim while the other victim unlocked the safe.

He took money from the safe and left out of the back of the building, according to police.

Baltimore County’s commercial robbery division is investigating the incident, said Franklin Precinct commander Capt. Matthew McElwee.

This is happening way too often.

It's what you get when our government sets the pattern of extortion - others follow.

Had one of the employees been carrying a gun, these little wussy robbers would have run off. Too bad we have "gun free zones."
