Leesburg Police Make Arrest In Gas Station Robbery

© Leesburg Today - 06/30/2015

One day after issuing a request for the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted for robbing an Edwards Ferry Road gas station last week, the Leesburg Police Department made an arrest Tuesday.

Investigators said that on June 23, at about 4:47 a.m., Steven Tyrone Williams, 48, of no fixed address, entered the Exxon gas station located at 984 Edwards Ferry Road NE, walked behind the counter and placed several packs of cigarettes into a bag. He also removed cash from two registers.

As Williams was putting the money into his pocket, the cashier confronted him. After a brief struggle, the suspect ran away.

Williams was charged with robbery and held without bond at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center.
