LEONARDTOWN, Md. (Nov. 26, 2008)—The Burchmart convenience store in Mechanicsville was robbed around 4:30 Wednesday morning. The sole armed robber escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police describe the suspect as a white male, approximately 5'07"- 5"08", wearing a camouflage hooded jacket, light blue denim jeans, dark colored boots, and a ski mask.

St. Mary's County Sheriff and Maryland State Police patrol officers were assisted by a Charles Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit in conducting an extensive search of the area, but the suspect was not located.
