The armed robbery of a Maryland 7-Eleven is caught on camera

Surveillance video shows an armed robbery in a Maryland 7-Eleven. The researchers are asking the public help in identifying the suspect.

The latest “Call of Duty” game will be credited with the capture of an armed robber who police say held up a 7-Eleven store in Maryland.

Montgomery County Police announced Thursday that they captured Logan Stefon Lawson after receiving information about the “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” bag that the 21-year-old was seen during the robbery in Germantown on May 19.

One of the department officials – who also apparently a “Call of Duty” fan – told detectives that the bag seen in the surveillance images was to GameStop customers who pre-ordered the title, which is set for a release in October.

Logan Stefon Lawson was arrested after police followed him down with the help of the bag that he kept during an armed robbery in Maryland.

“Detectives were able to confirm that Lawson is a pre-order of the game and got the bag,” said the police, adding that they receive tips to help identify Lawson as the suspect and managed to track him down and arrest him in a motel in Gaithersburg on May 25.

The police said that they have proof of the theft at the motel and have charged Lawson with armed robbery, first-degree assault and use of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Lawson is currently being held without bond and he may have to wait a while to play “Black Ops 4”.
