Camden, N.J. – Detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying the man responsible for two armed robberies in two days, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer, Magnolia Police Chief Scott Paris, and Somerdale Police Chief Anthony Campbell.
Investigators said the man first robbed the 7 Eleven on the 600 block of the N. White Horse Pike in Magnolia on May 31 around 9:30 a.m. On June 1, a man matching the same description robbed the Rite Aid on the 600 block of N. Warwick Road in Somerdale around 2:15 p.m.
In the first incident, a man wearing a white t-shirt, black shorts, white hat, blue face-mask and Crocs entered the store. After buying a coffee, the man asked the clerk to put sugar in it.
Police said when the clerk turned around, the man came around the counter, pointed to a weapon under his shirt, and demanded money from the register. The clerk said the man then left with cash and cigarettes.
The next day, a man wearing the same clothing was captured on surveillance footage entering the Rite Aid in Somerdale. After going to the pharmacy counter, the man walks to the front of the store and goes behind the counter.
Footage shows the man place a black handgun in the back of the clerk while demanding money before quickly leaving the store.
If you recognize the man in the footage or have any information that could help investigators, please contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Briana Hagan at 609-508-3333, Magnolia Police Detective David Bryson at 856-784-1884, or Somerdale Police Detective Howard Dawson at 856-373-6623.
