$7,500 reward offered in New Jersey store robberies
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. - January 25, 2014 (WPVI) -- Authorities are offering a $7,500 reward as the search continues for a group of dangerous bandits who have held up several convenience stores in New Jersey.
Police believe the suspects are responsible for holding up convenience stores in both Camden and Burlington counties.
On January 10th, police say they shot a clerk at a 7-Eleven in Pennsauken. The 28-year-old victim is still in critical condition at Cooper University Hospital.
On January 16th, two different 7-Elevens in Mount Laurel were robbed at gunpoint - one on Route 73, the other on Marne Highway.
In total, investigators think the men are responsible for at least 8 armed robberies, dating back to December 10th.
"One of the frustrating things about this case is that the people perpetrating these are wearing masks, they're wearing hoods, so it's very hard to get identifying information. What we really need is someone who has inside information, knows who these people are, can call us and put us on the right track," said Jason Laughlin of the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
Police are not sure how many suspects are involved in this robbery ring.
