Police looking for men who robbed Mt. Washington Royal Farms store four times in eight months

BALTIMORE - Baltimore County police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the robbers who hit a Royal Farms in Mount Washington four times since last July.

Police said the Royal Farms in the 6000 block of Falls Road was robbed last week, as well as in July, October and November.  Investigators believe that one of the robbers may be involved in more than one of the robberies.

On July 14, between 5:25 a.m. and 5:32 a.m., a cashier was at the front counter when she was approached by two black men. The first one displayed a black handgun and demanded money, and they ran away with an unknown amount of money.

On Oct. 20, the Royal Farms was hit around 5:22 a.m. by two black men between the ages of 18 and 25. The first man displayed a handgun and wanted to know where the safe was. After an employee opened the safe, the men took money and ran toward the Dumpster in the parking lot.

On Nov. 26, at 11:59 p.m., a black man in his early 20s entered the store, approached the counter and demanded the money from the cash register. The cashier told police the man had his hand under his sweatshirt and in the waistband of his pants, which led him to believe he was armed. The man took an unknown amount of cash and ran off through the parking lot.

And on March 9, at around 5:18 a.m., two black men between the ages of 18 and 25, tall and about 175 pounds, entered the store. The first man went behind the counter and told a clerk to move out of the way, while the second waited in front of the counter and displayed a handgun. They took an unknown amount of money and ran off toward the Dumpsters.

Seung Han is the manager at Yog, a shop in the same plaza. He says he knew the Royal Farms just a few doors down had been robbed before but wasn't aware of the most recent incident. Still, he says there are a few reasons he won't be making any major changes.
 
"We open at like, what, 11:30 to 9:30 so that's definitely when a lot of people are walking by so I'm very safe here. Also I have a lot of police cars driving by and stopping by here ... so I think I'm always safe here," Han said.

Police say there were no reports of shots fired or injuries during any of these incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-877-LOCKUP.

If your tip to the Metro Crime Stoppers hotline leads to the arrest or indictment of a suspect for a felony crime, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
