Juvenile Arrested In Connection With Wareham Robbery
A juvenile has been arrested in connection with a convenience store robbery in Wareham early Sunday morning.
Police Chief Kevin Walsh says that at approximately 3 a.m. officers were dispatched to the Cumberland Farms store on Depot St. over an armed robbery with a handgun.
Upon arrival officers were told the suspect, described as a masked male, left the area on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
The clerk wasn't harmed.
Shortly thereafter a juvenile male was seen trying to cross Route 6 and Route 28 from the Depot St. area.
He was taken home to his parents as police began the investigation into the robbery.
Walsh says that during the course of the investigation it was confirmed through video surveillance that the teen matched the description of the suspect and he was identified as the one who robbed the store.
During a search of the area near the Cumberland Farms store officers uncovered a bag containing a Halloween type mask, a flashlight, and clothing which match the type of clothing that the suspect allegedly wore during the robbery.
When daybreak arrived officers found a black Airsoft pistol with the orange tip painted black behind the Atlantic Motel, which is located a short distance from the store.
Officers also found cash which was determined to be the money stolen from the store.
Walsh says the juvenile male was placed under arrest and charged with Armed Robbery.
He was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Wareham District Court.
