The Hagerstown Police Department installed two security cameras outside the AC&T gas station on Frederick Street on Thursday following the third robbery at the business within two weeks, according to Hagerstown Police Chief Mark Holtzman.
Holtzman said the cameras were installed on two utility poles outside the business at 724 Frederick St.
The cameras record 24 hours a day and can be monitored live or on a delayed basis for specific time periods, Holtzman said.
The most recent robbery occurred at the gas station Wednesday night about 8:26 p.m.
A white male with dark clothing, a mask and gloves entered the station and demanded money, said Sgt. John Lehman.
No weapon was displayed and the male left the station with an undisclosed amount of cash, Lehman said.
Holtzman said the cameras installed outside the AC&T station are two of 50 the police department purchased through a COPS Technology grant.
The cameras can be moved around town to help police battle crime problems, Holtzman said.
Holtzman said the cameras were installed after city police officials and AC&T officials met Thursday about what can be done to curb crime. Holtzman said city police will also increase patrols in the Frederick Street area.
Anyone with information leading to an arrest in the robberies at the gas station can contact the police department at 301-790-3700 or by submitting information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
