Armed Robbery Reported at Eastern Ave. Hess

Police confirm an armed robbery at the gas station, located at the busy Broadway and Eastern Ave. intersection.

Police confirmed scanner reports that a Broadway Hess gas station was robbed around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

The suspect was described as a black male, 5'9", with a mustache and wearing a winter jacket with a black hood, winter hat and prescription glasses. 

He presented a black gun to the cashier, collected an undisclosed sum of money and fled the scene on foot, Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb said. 

"We're still searching and checking video" for clues, Gatcomb said in a text message from the scene around 7:00pm. 

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the detective's office at 781-397-7181.

Maybe I misread it but I thought you were accusing me of covering up crimes in the city ("So what is the deal Chris? Do you really know something?"). Sorry if that wasn't what you were implying, though it's been said before - no offense.

Did you get my email about it? I sent it to the account with which you registered your Patch account.

Have no read email yet and was just asking not accusing.

Sounds like Everett has taken a page from Malden procedures. Which is. Hide as much as you can so the citizens think they live in a safe city. By a scanner and you can blow that theory out of the water.

Thats because you asked the dreaded question. Was it gang related. Most of the reporters now won't say a word if you bring it up because most cities in this area don't want to admit it.
