Armed Robbery at Auto Parts Store

Arlington County Police Department badgePolice are investigating an armed robbery at Advance Auto Parts on the 5400 block of Lee Highway.

According to police, two subjects walked into the store shortly before it closed on Sunday night, around 8:40 p.m. A suspect with a gun forced one of the two store employees to the floor. The other suspect remained with that employee while the armed suspect led a second employee to the back to get money from the safe.

After taking money from the safe, police say the suspects grabbed money from cash registers in the front of the store. They demanded both employees to lie on the floor, then fled the scene. Neither store employee was injured.

Police say the suspect with the gun is described as a 6’1″ black male, about 200 pounds, wearing a black shirt and dark jeans. The second suspect is described as a 6’0″ black male, about 200 pounds, wearing a black shirt and tan pants. Both are believed to be in their 20s and were wearing black ski masks at the time.

Anybody who may have information about the robbery or the suspects is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 703-558-2222.
