Fingerprints have linked a 59-year-old Alexandria man to a February 25 robbery at the 7-Eleven at 3412 Mount Vernon Avenue in the Arlandria area.
The same suspect, Stanley Rivers, was already in jail for allegedly burgling the 7-Eleven down the road at 2108 Mount Vernon Avenue on Friday, Jan. 22. He was arrested on June 16, nearly five months after DNA evidence linked him to the January incident.
The Feb. 25 incident occurred at around 11:40 p.m. Employees told police that Rivers waited in line holding a makeshift face mask, and that he was offered to buy a mask for $1, according to a search warrant affidavit. Police were told that the suspect fumbled with the pockets of his jacket and then went to the soda machine and poured himself a Mountain Dew with an ungloved hand.
The suspect then allegedly walked back to the employee, placed the drink on the counter, and put his hand under his jacket as if he was holding something and demanded that the employee open the register. She tried to open it unsuccessfully, and Rivers allegedly tried to unsuccessfully grab the till as the employee ran to a back room for help, police said.
The cup that the suspect was carrying in his ungloved hand was collected by Alexandria Police, according to the affidavit. Two of Rivers’ fingerprints were identified on the cup.
Rivers was arrested on June 16 and charged with burglary, assaulting law enforcement, resisting arrest, property destruction and stealing two credit card numbers.
