Two men robbed the Food Mart on Route 130 at gunpoint Sunday night, the second robbery at the store in the last two weeks, police said.
According to Delran Police, two men—a white male and a black male wearing ski masks—entered the store, at the corner of Route 130 North and Chestnut Hill Drive, shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday. They stole cash and Newport cigarettes and fled on foot on Chestnut Hill Drive.
The first robbery at the Food Mart occurred at 9:38 p.m. on Jan. 16, police said.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Delran detectives at 856-461-4498 or call the confidential crime tip line at 856-461-9010.
There have been several armed robberies at convenience stores and gas stations across the area in recent weeks. Just a little farther up the highway, Cinnaminson Police investigated an attempted robbery at the Shell station that occurred during last Tuesday’s snowstorm.
Maple Shade Police reported an armed robbery at the Country Farms convenience store on Route 73, also during the snowstorm.Authorities believe the same group of men are responsible for both robberies, along with five others in Burlington County, as well as the robbery of a 7-Eleven in Pennsauken in Camden County, in which a clerk was shot and critically wounded.
