7-Eleven Armed Robbery Arrest

On December 20, 2008 at approximately 0250 hours, officers with the Frederick Police Department responded to the 7-Eleven store located at 1042 W. Patrick St. for a report of an armed robbery. Video surveillance showed a male wearing a black knit cap, black jacket and blue jeans had entered the store and pushed the clerk behind the counter. While brandishing a knife, the suspect had the clerk open the cash register, where he then removed an undisclosed amount of money. Additionally, the suspect took a quantity of lottery tickets and a pack of cigarettes before fleeing the store on foot. Following a search of the area, the suspect was not immediately located.

Detective Michael Morgan of the Criminal Investigation Division investigated the robbery and was able to identify a possible suspect who was later identified by the clerk as the person who had robbed the business. Before Det. Morgan could apply for criminal charges, officers received a call from the 7-Eleven store early Tuesday morning, 2/10/09, advising the male who had robbed the business was standing outside the establishment. The suspect, identified as Alonzo Joseph Brazzley, age 34 of Queens, NY, was located by officers a short distance away and placed under arrest.

Brazzley was transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center and charged with armed robbery, robbery, 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, and theft less than $500.
