Just a day after two men tried to rob a Wells Fargo bank in Rockville at gunpoint, police say they may be behind another failed armed robbery in a CVS in Cabin John Wednesday morning.
According to a statement released Wednesday morning by police, two men entered the CVS store on Tuckerman Lane and demanded money from a store employee at gunpoint.
The would-be robbery occurred just before 4 a.m., but the men fled without obtaining any money, according to the release.
As they fled, one of the robbers — the one wielding the handgun – fired the gun outside of the store, but no one was struck, police said.
According to police, one of the robbers was wearing a black baseball cap with white insignia, a black hooded sweatshirt with a gray logo, camouflage pants, black tennis shoes, and a fake beard.
The second robber was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a black ski mask.
Detectives are considering the possibility that these two suspects were involved in the attempted robbery of the Wells Fargo bank that occurred Tuesday in Rockville. Police did not yet say what led them to think the two crimes might be connected.
Anyone with information about the robbery should call 866-411-8477, police say.
