PITTSVILLE, Md.- Detectives with the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation are looking for a suspect who robbed a Pittsville convenience store at knifepoint Wednesday morning, blaming the government for his actions.

Detectives said that shortly after 1 a.m., a lone white male entered the Shore Stop on Friendship Road and Ocean Gateway with a knife. The man demanded cash from an employee and then ran out of the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to investigators.

The suspect was described as approximately 5-foot-5 and with a heavy build, and his face was covered with a scarf/handkerchief. He was wearing a blue hat with a star on the front, turned backwards. He was also wearing blue jeans and a long sleeve dark shirt/jacket and sneakers.

Detectives said that as the suspect left, he apologized to the store clerk and said, "Blame it on the government."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the WBI at (410) 548-4898 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
