CUMBERLAND, Ind. (June 12, 2015) – Cumberland police are looking for a man who struck at a local gas station twice within the same week.

The first robbery happened on June 4 at the Speedway gas station at 965 N. German Church Rd. The man entered the business and told the cashier to “give me all the money.” He implied he had a gun, police said. He wore a gray hoodie.

Days later, on June 8, the man entered the same gas station, this time wearing a blue hoodie. He again told the cashier to give him money and implied he was carrying a gun. Investigators said it appeared to be the same man from the June 4 robbery.

The man is described as 6’0” to 6’2” and in his early 20s. He also wore the same shoes during both robberies—tennis shoes that were black on top and white or a lighter color on the bottom.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 (TIPS) or 800-222-8477 (TIPS). You can also text “INDYCS” plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES) or submit online at
