Detectives from the Major Crimes Division – Robbery Section continue to investigate an armed robbery of a business that occurred on January 21 at The Gold Spot, located at 11935 Georgia Avenue in the Glenmont area of Silver Spring.
At approximately 12:45 p.m., the suspect arrived at the business and pulled on the front door attempting to gain entry. The business has controlled access, so when the suspect was seen at the door, the employee allowed him entry into the store.
