Police are seeking help in locating four men, including one as a suspect, involved in a possible armed robbery of a limo driver as he was stopped to fill his gas tank at the Citgo Food Bag on the Berlin Turnpike early Wednesday morning.

The limo driver had stopped around 1 a.m. at the 109 Berlin Turnpike store, Deputy Police Chief John Klett said, when a black sedan pulled up to an adjacent fuel pump and one of the men jumped out and forced the limo driver to give up “a small amount of cash” that he had on him.

“The black male suspect threatened the use of a handgun but none was shown,” Klett said. “The suspect had exited a black vehicle parked at the adjacent fuel pump. The limo driver stated that he had observed this vehicle and said ‘it was occupied by a white male and three black males’.”

The suspect then returned to the vehicle and left with the other three, taking off in a black, newer model sedan with polished rims. The car is believed to possibly be a Chrysler 300.

Too bad the driver wasn't armed, and dropped all four of these ghetto hood rats.
