Police continue Dunkin’ Donuts robbery investigation


WYOMING — Richmond Police continue to look for the man who escaped with money after robbing the Dunkin’ Donuts on busy Kingstown Road Saturday night. No one was hurt in the incident.

Police Chief Elwood M. Johnson Jr. said Wednesday the suspect’s description and photos taken from video cameras in the store during the robbery at about 6:30 p.m. have been placed on the Rhode Island’s Most Wanted website under suspect 2640, case submission 130223.

Police said a lone female clerk was in the store adjacent to Stop & Shop and Interstate 95 when the man, the only customer in the store, ordered a medium coffee.

Police said it was shortly after when the white male demanded money from the clerk. The suspect is described as 45-55 years old, of medium build; 5 feet, 9 inches to 5 feet, 11 inches in height; with a close-cropped beard and mustache, wearing black pants and jacket and a black derby-style cap

The clerk was promised she would not be hurt if she cooperated and no weapon was shown, police said.

The man left the store with what Richmond police reported was a “small amount of cash.” Police have not revealed the amount of money taken.

Johnson said the department is also working with the Rhode Island Fusion Center and conferring with other jurisdictions to determine if there are any similarities between suspects in surveillance photos, method of operation, vehicles and patterns.

The Fusion Center, overseen by a Rhode Island State police lieutenant, looks at cases in detail and puts out information to a wide area of sources.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 401-539-8289. Corp. William Litterio is the officer in charge of the case.
