Four People Arrest for a Slew of Gas Station and Bank Robberies in Huntington and Suffolk County

break4robbersSuffolk County Police have arrested several people for multiple bank and gas station robberies that occurred in Suffolk County since last December.

A man entered the Shell gas station, located at 444 Commack Rd., Commack, on January 22, at approximately 7 p.m. After making a purchase, the man pointed towards his waistband indicating he had a weapon. He then made a verbal demand for cash. When the clerk failed to comply, the man fled without proceeds into a waiting vehicle.

A Good Samaritan followed the vehicle for a short distance and gave an accurate description to the police. Patrol officers saw a vehicle that matched the description and initiated a traffic stop. After an investigation, the officer arrested Shabril Maxwell, Stacey Beck and Douglas McKeefery. Maxwell had been a person of interest in several of the bank and gas station robberies.
