QUEENSTOWN, Md. (WUSA9) - Maryland State Police say they need the help to identify an armed robbery suspect who robbed a Queen Anne's County jewelry store last weekend in disguise.
The suspect is described by police as a man, about six feet tall possibly weighing 180-200 pounds. Police say the man has a thin build and possibly has short dark hair.
The suspect was wearing an "oversized suit jacket, a backpack on his chest, a dark wig, a fake beard, sunglasses, and a ball cap", police say. Police also say the man was driving a white Yamaha sport motorcycle with silver stickers.
According to police, at about 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, the suspect went into Ultra Diamonds jewelry store in the 100-block of Outlet Center Drive in Queenstown.
The man had a handgun and subsequently took dozens of pieces of jewelry from the store, police say. No one was injured, police say.
The man reportedly left the store on foot to a space behind the shopping center to take his disguise off. The suspect then left on the Yamaha, wearing a green and black riding jacket, and a "multi-colored helmet that had yellow/green duct tape holding the face shield on".
Police say the man was seen ditching the motorcycle to run into a wooded area on Nesbit Road in Grasonville.
After searching the area police could not locate the man. The motorcycle was located. It had been stolen from somewhere in D.C. in 2010.
Police ask anyone with any information to call 410-758-1101. Callers may remain confidential.
