GRASONVILLE — Deputies are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Grasonville 7-Eleven store on Friday, April 19, around 4 a.m. The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to the store within minutes of the 911 call.

According to the preliminary investigation, an unidentified male entered the store and demanded money. Surveillance video showed the suspect brandishing what appeared to be a handgun.

The robber then fled with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

The robber is described as a white male, about 6 ft. tall with a medium build. He was wearing black Nike shoes, black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt, a black face mask, and gray gloves, police said.

No injuries were reported.

This is the third armed robbery of the store at Pullman Crossing Road in a little over a year. The store was robbed at gunpoint on April 11, 2018, and an attempted armed robbery was interrupted by customers on July 12, 2018. The robberies have all occurred between midnight and 4 a.m.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or has any related information is asked to contact Detective Steve Matthews at 410-758-0770, ext. 1282.

I often wonder why the security cameras in convenience stores, banks or any other place that has "easy" cash (which is perfect target for a robbery), have cameras with such low resolution. I have cameras all around my house, which have, at a minimum of 1080HD resolution. These cameras are about $150 a piece. Who could identify a suspect with such a blurry still-frame?
