State Police Seek Franklin Gas Station Robber

State police are seeking the public's help in finding a man who robbed a Mobil gas station store on Tuesday night in Franklin.

Concealing his face with a blue bandanna and dark sun glasses, the man walked up to the counter and demanded, " Give me all the money," state police said. He reached into his waistband like he was going to pull out a handgun but he never showed a weapon and just implied he had one, according to state police.

The robber left the scene on foot and fled northbound on Route 32 on a blue Harley Davidson motorcycle that had been parked in a driveway west of the gas station.

Troopers responded at about 6:30 p.m. after receiving a hold-up alarm from the gas station at 62 Route 32 in Franklin. State police investigating obtained video security surveillance and other information and spoke to witnesses about the robbery.

State police said the robber had a stocky build and that he was wearing jeans, black sneakers with white trim and a blue T-shirt. His hair was shaved closely to his head, he has a receding hairline and is balding on the back of his head, state police said.

State police ask anyone who recognizes the man or knows information about the robbery to call the Eastern Major Crime squad at Troop K in Colchester at 860-465-5421.
