Loudoun County, VA (December 31, 2020) – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the attempted armed robbery of the High-Up Food Mart where the suspect discharged several rounds inside the store.              

The suspect entered the store on Sugarland Run Drive in Sterling shortly before 10 p.m. on December 30 where he brandished a firearm and demanded cash. The cashier refused and locked himself inside an office. At that time, the suspect discharged at least two rounds towards the office. There were no injuries. 

The suspect fled the store in an unknown direction. LCSO Deputies responded to the scene, established a perimeter, and the area was searched. The suspect was not located. The suspect was wearing a mask that concealed his face and appeared to be wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, dark-colored shoes, and black gloves along with a dark colored backpack.

Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective M. Grimsley of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021.
