Washington Township, NJ Police on Hunt for ‘Very Large’ Wawa Robbery Suspect
Police in Washington Township, New Jersey need help identifying and locating a suspect who recently robbed a Wawa store.
The theft reportedly took place just before 4 in the morning on Saturday, September 16th at the Wawa on Black Horse Pike in Turnersville (near Lowe's and Target).
A 'very large' man, as police describe, strolled into the store and threatened the store employees with bodily harm if they didn't comply with his demands.
The robber got away with a register tray full of money and took off on foot back onto the Black Horse Pike going southbound, Patch.com reports.
Although this robbery took place in the overnight hours, Washington Township Police are hoping someone recognizes the suspect. Surveillance images show a man very large in stature, approximately 240-280 lbs. and standing rough 6 ft., 1 in. tall. He appears to have been wearing dark pants, dark gloves, a dark face covering, dark beanie hat, and a grey-colored hoodie as he committed the crime.
If you have any information that could assist police in their investigation, please contact Washington Township Detective Tommy Myers at 856-589-0330 ext. 1136.
