Armed Carjacking at Chevy Chase Gas Station
Around 8:20PM Thursday, an armed carjacking was reported at the Giant Gas Station at 8500 Connecticut Avenue, just north of Chevy Chase Lake Drive and the future Purple Line.
Montgomery County Police 2nd District units responded and determined that a driver was approached by a suspect who pulled a gun and demanded the victim’s car. A black Audi A3 was stolen.
Montgomery County Police Robbery Section Detectives are joining the investigation as this incident involved a weapon.
A 2007 Saturn Aura was stolen at the Carroll Motor Fuels Gas Station just across Connecticut Avenue back in November. While that incident may seem similar, it was much less brazen as it was a theft of a running/unlocked vehicle, without a confrontation or weapon involved.
