State Police Seek Public’s Help in Investigation into Pike Starbucks Armed Robbery

The Massachusetts State Police are releasing images of the suspect who robbed a Starbucks drive-thru at gunpoint yesterday and an image of his suspected get-away vehicle. The robbery occurred at approximately 6 a.m. at the Starbucks located in the Framingham Rest Area on Route 90 westbound.

We ask the public to contact us if they recognize anything in these images or have any information about this suspect or incident.

The male suspect was dressed entirely in black and wore a mask, with only his eyes visible. He is described as having an average build, approximately 5' 5" to 5' 8" tall, approximately 160 lbs, with the visible skin around his eyes being tan in appearance. The suspect was dressed in all black clothing, to include his coat, pants, boots, ski mask, and latex gloves.

The suspect entered the building through a door used by employees. Upon entry, the suspect displayed a small black automatic handgun, pointed it at two Starbucks employees, and forced one of them to open the safe in the office. The suspect removed money and then fled on foot, carrying an amount of both loose and bundled dollar bills in a variety of denominations in his arms.

The suspect was later observed entering a small black SUV parked on Audrea Road behind the plaza and fleeing north toward Brook Street.

State Police believe a person matching the suspect's description was also observed outside the Starbucks at approximately 6 a.m. hours on Tuesday, Dec. 24, two days prior to the armed robbery.

Anyone with information about this suspect or incident, or who recognizes anything in the images, is urged to please contact State Police-Weston at (781) 431-5050. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
