Jet Mart Conoco in Kennewick Robbed for a THIRD Time This Month!!
For the third time this month, the Jet Mart Conoco on Volland Street in Kennewick has been the scene of an armed robbery.
According to Sgt. Aaron Clem with the Kennewick Police Department, a man wearing a mask and dark clothing entered the store Monday night, armed with a knife.
He demanded cash from the clerk, who complied.
The suspect then left the scene on foot with the proverbial undisclosed amount of cash.
“We’re not sure if this is the same guy as the other two robberies, but we’re considering that possibility,” said Sgt. Clem. “It’s a similar place, similar time, similar weapon, but we won’t know for sure until we get someone in custody.”
The clerk involved in Monday night’s robbery was the same victim in the first of a string of robberies now which began just over a week ago.
At this time, investigators don’t plan to release any photos of the suspect in this incident, but are asking anyone who may have seen anything to contact Kennewick Police or Crime Stoppers.
This is the 3rd robbery at this convenience store, and police believe they are all connected based off the suspect male description.
If you have any information on these robberies, please contact non-emergency dispatch at (509) 628-0333 or to remain anonymous call Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers (800) 222-8477.
