Burlington County Verizon store robbery caught on camera

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Police in Burlington County are asking for the public's help in identifying an armed robbery suspect who was caught on camera.

At 7:46 p.m. Saturday, Westampton police were called to the Verizon Wireless Store on the 1800 block of Burlington-Mount Holly Road for the report of an armed man.

Upon arrival, patrol units spoke with the store manager who stated a man wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants, a ski mask, and white Nike sneakers charged into the store wielding a handgun.

The man demanded to know where the Apple iPhones were located.

Once the manager advised him that all the Apple iPhones were located, he then instructed him to take all of the $20 bills out of the register and place them in a pillow case he had.

Once all of the money was in the pillowcase the suspect demanded the store manager to escort him to where the iPhones were located.

The suspect demanded that the manager fill the pillow case with all of the Apple iPhone 5s. Once the iPhones were placed in the pillowcase the suspect ran out the back of the store and into a nearby neighborhood.

The suspect fled the scene with several Apple iPhones and a undetermined amount of cash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Westampton Police Detectives at (609)-267-3000.
