Loudoun County Sheriff's Office seal

Loudoun County authorities are investigating an armed robbery at a convenience store on Lizzio Center Drive in Chantilly early Tuesday.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Around 4 a.m., an unknown suspect entered the Royal Farms convenience store, brandished a firearm and demanded cash from two employees, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash from the registers, the suspect fled via a back exit of the store.

The suspect was described as wearing all black clothing. Described as a male, he was wearing a black plastic skeleton mask during the robbery.

Shortly after the robbery, a sheriff's office deputy saw someone run into a wooded area along Edgewater Drive near Pleasant Woods Court. A perimeter was quickly established, but no subject was located, according to the LCSO.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to contact Det. C. Pickrell at 703-777-1021. Tipsters can also submit information through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app, which is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
