GAMBRILLS, MD – A Facebook marketplace meeting to sell products turned into an armed robbery in front of Starbucks on Brandermmill Boulevard in Gambrills on Monday. The seller chose a seemingly safe location for the transaction, but it ended badly.
According to police, at around 8:30 pm, officers responded to a 911 call reporting an armed robbery outside of Starbucks.
“Two adult victims arranged to sell a coat to an individual on Facebook MarketPlace and agreed to meet at the shopping center,” the Anne Arundel County Police Department said today. “As they arrived at the location, an unknown male suspect approached the victims and asked for the coat. As the victims produced the coat, the suspect pulled up his shirt, displaying a handgun in his waistband.”
The victims complied with the armed robber, who fled the scene in a light-colored Honda car.
Police said the suspect is a black male, 25 years of age, 5’08”, thin build, wearing a blue mask, long-sleeve black sweatshirt, black jogging pants, and black shoes.
No arrests have been made.
