Crook complains about coffee, robs Wawa

Sur­veil­lance photo

Maybe he was ex­pect­ing a free cup of cof­fee. But when a May­fair Wawa pat­ron didn’t get one, he grabbed the store’s cash in­stead.

The rob­bery oc­curred on March 21 at 3:38 a.m. at 7001 Roosevelt Blvd. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the man poured a cup of cof­fee and ap­proached a cash­ier as if to pay for it. When the clerk told him how much to pay, the man com­plained about the price, mo­tioned as if he had a weapon in­side his coat pock­et and de­man­ded money.

The em­ploy­ee sur­rendered an un­dis­closed amount of cash to the crook, who fled on foot to­ward the 2800 block of Tyson Ave. He was de­scribed as white, 35 to 40 years old and about 160 pounds. He wore a green skull cap, black coat, black pants and a scarf or tur­tle­neck cov­er­ing his face. He also had white sneak­ers and gloves.
