Caroline seeks leads in truck-stop robbery

Caroline County authorities are investigating an armed robbery at the Flying J Travel Plaza.

Caroline Sheriff Tony Lippa said a Flying J employee was approached in the parking lot of the Ruther Glen truck stop at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

The man pointed a gun at the employee and said “Give me the money,” Lippa said.

The man then reached into the female employee’s jacket and took a bag of money that belonged to the store and then fled on foot, Lippa said.

The robber is described as a black male between the ages of 25 and 30. He is about 5 foot 6 inches tall and weighs between 200 and 250 pounds.

Anyone with information about the robbery or a possible suspect is asked to call the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office at 804/633-5400.
