Early Tuesday morning, 12/06/2011, at approximately 4:00AM, the Frostburg Police responded to a reported armed robbery which had just occurred at the 7-11 Convenience Store, located on East Main Street in Frostburg.
Officers interviewed an employee who was working at the time and learned that a lone suspect entered the store, displayed a handgun, and demanded the money from the cash registers. The employee complied, giving the suspect an undisclosed sum of cash. The suspect then fled the store on foot.
A search of the area was conducted by the Frostburg Police, with the assistance of the Allegany County Sheriff's Office, but the suspect was not located at that time. The crime scene was processed for evidence by the Maryland State Police Crime Lab.

The suspect also wore a plastic bag over his head to conceal his identity.
