York Road Starbucks robbed

22 January 2014 By Jonathan Munshaw, Editor-in-Chief No Comments

Baltimore County Police are continuing to search for a suspect involved in robbing the Starbucks on York Road.
The Starbucks robbery occurred on Jan. 6 just before 6 a.m. at the popular coffee shop located just feet from campus.
According to Baltimore County Police, the suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash after brandishing a firearm.
“These employees did the right thing. They turned over the cash. Many times, the suspect is looking to take the cash and run and that’s what happened here,” Elise Armacost, a spokeswoman for Baltimore County Police, said to WJZ the day of the robbery.
Eight days earlier, there was another armed robbery at a different Starbucks, however, an arrest was made in relation to that incident.
Armacost told The Towerlight that there have been no arrests or leads in regards to the York Road Starbucks robbery.
The Starbucks robbery is just one in a number of armed robberies that have occurred in the Towson area in the past several months.
In December, there was an armed robbery at the Towson Town Center mall. Two men were arrested in connection with that incident, when the men targeted a male in the bathroom of the mall and robbed him with a knife.
There was also an armed robbery at a residence in late December, when two intruders armed with a gun kicked in a door in the 300 block of East Burke Avenue.
The residents were able to prevent the pair from entering, and the intruders fled.
In response to crime that occurred during last semester, Baltimore County Police added three new officer positions to the Towson Precinct starting Nov. 1.
