A man wearing a green sweatshirt and jeans robbed Cumberland Farms on Route 94 in the Beaver Dam Lake section of Cornwall this week. The suspect, who was not apprehended by police, allegedly had his hand in his sweatshirt pocket and told the cashier he had a gun.
He yelled “open the register you’re being robbed,” Trooper Steven Nevel, state police Troop F public information officer, confirmed citing a police report. The suspect’s mouth was covered by a sweatshirt, police said.
A store employee didn’t see the weapon. The suspect grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from behind the counter, and urged the employee not to call the police. A small amount of money was left in the draw, police said.
The robbery occurred at about 2:08 a.m.
The investigation is ongoing. Those with information about this incident are asked to call state police at 845-344-5300.
