• Officers from the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department responded to the Sunoco A-Plus, 975 West Cypress Street, in New Garden Township, for an activated alarm on Sept. 19, shortly before 2 a.m. Officers found the glass front door had shattered and merchandise strewn across the floor. A review of store surveillance video shows that the unknown suspect used a landscaping paver to break the glass door and enter the store. He then leaped the counter and removed the cash register drawer. He jumped back over the counter and exited the same way he entered. Police described the suspect as a tall, slim male. He was wearing a dark Under Armour hoodie with the red letters "USMC" across the chest. Under the black sweatshirt hood, he had a white hood or shirt pulled over his head and face. He was wearing dark sweatpants with white lettering on the left side, which appears to read "New York…," and was wearing white Air Jordan high-top sneakers with red trim. The actor had his right hand covered by a white glove or sock and used that hand to take the cash box and items from under the counter.
