Cockeysville Goodwill store robbed, police investigate possible link to Parkville incidents

Baltimore County Police are investigating yet another robbery of a local Goodwill store, the most recent of which saw an armed man take an undisclosed amount of money from the Cockeysville Goodwill store in the 200 block of West Padonia Avenue.

At around 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18, a masked man with a handgun entered the Cockeysville Goodwill and ordered the customers and employees into the office area, according to a police department release.

The man fled from the scene on foot. A police search that involved its K-9 units was unsuccessful.

Police are following up on leads they have received and investigating possible connections between this latest incident and the two robberies of the Towson-area Goodwill store in the 1700 block of East Joppa Road in Parkville on Nov. 11 and Nov. 16.

In those robberies, which police spokesman Cathy Batton said are likely related, an armed black male described as having a dark complexion, age 20 to 30, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-9 and weighing 180 pounds stole money from the store.

A total for $2,046 was stolen at 11:38 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, while a little more than $800 was taken on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Another incident on Friday, Nov. 11, at the Cockeysville store, in which an employee fought off an a man with a BB gun who attempted to rob the store, was initially not thought to be related to the Parkville robberies.

Police continue to look for information about the robberies. Call 410-307-2020 to report a tip.
