Whitemarsh Township Police Department Investigating Robbery at BP Gas Station

The Whitemarsh Township Police Department is reporting that the BP gas station at 444 Germantown Pike in Lafayette Hill was robbed at 3:17 p.m. today (Saturday, November 18th).

According to the report, a black male in his 20’s, wearing jeans and a dark hoodie, brandished a black semi-automatic pistol, and demanded cash. The clerk complied and the suspect left on foot heading west on Germantown Pike. No one was injured.

It is believed that the suspect eventually departed the area in a black, four-door sedan similar to Ford Focus or Nissan Versa.

Last week, the department investigated a report of shots being fired at Ridge and Joshua Road. Shell casings were found.

If you have information on either incident, you are asked to call (610) 825-6530.
