MPD Investigates Armed Robbery
On January 15, 2017 at approximately 9:20 p.m., officers with the Martinsburg Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office responded to Walgreens located at 101 Forbes Drive in Martinsburg in reference to a report of an armed robbery that had occurred. Upon arrival, witnesses advised that a male suspect wearing a blue hoodie, black pants, white tennis shoes, and a white mask entered the store and approached two female employees. He then displayed a fixed blade knife and ordered the employees to give him money.
The suspect proceeded to push the two female employees toward the cash register at the front of the store. They gave him cash from the register and he placed it into a navy blue drawstring bag. Once he had collected most of the cash from the register, the suspect fled the store on foot.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Martinsburg Police Department at (304) 264-2100.
