On November 19 at approximately 11:21 p.m. units from the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the BP Gas Station and Shop, located on Md. Route 260 just prior to Md. Route 4 in Dunkirk, for the report of an attempted robbery.
Upon arrival units learned that two suspects who appear to male, attempted to gain entry into the store, which was open for business. Suspect number one is described as a 5’7” to 5’9” male, dressed in a Santa suit with a full wig and beard. Suspect number two is described as a 5’11” to 6’01” male wearing all black or dark clothing, including a mask, and is armed with what appears to be an AK-47 style assault rifle. It is unknown if the firearm is real or a replica style toy. As the suspects approached the door, the suspect dressed in Santa attire attempted to open it but was unable to do so because it was locked. The suspects then fled on foot.
Det. H. Rich of the Criminal Investigations Bureau was on the scene and has assumed the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Rich at 410-535-1600 extension 2765.
