7-Eleven On Main Avenue Robbed

Detective: Bandit claimed to have a gun, but didn't display it. Left evidentiary material behind.

A man entered the 7-Eleven store at 247 Main Ave. shortly after 4 a.m. Monday and announced a robbery.

Police said the man told the lone clerk in the store he had a gun, but didn't display it. He demanded all the money in the register, which the clerk gave him.

The Danbury Branch of Metro-North's New Haven Line runs past the back of the store, and an employee from a nearby Dunkin Donuts told an officer he saw a man running south down the tracks. Officer Garrett Kruger and his dog, Kimbo, tracked the robber's scent along the tracks to Jefferson Street, where the dog lost the track.

Det. Sgt. Thomas Roncinske said the robber is a black male in his early- to mid-30s, 5-foot 7-inches tall, medium build, clean shaven. He was wearing a black ski cap and may have dredlocks, Roncinske said.

Roncinske said the robber left "evidentiary material" behind, but declined to say what it was.

By "evidentiary material", they must mean his face on the security footage. Note to robber - the whole ski cap thingie is meant to hide your identity... Just sayin'...

It must have been a spontaneous impulse on his part ... generated by left over excitement from attending the Oyster Festival.
