FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WWLP) – State police are searching for a suspect following an armed robbery Thursday morning at a Mass Pike service plaza.
According to State Police Director of Media Communication, Dave Procopio, the robbery took place before 6:30 A.M. at the Starbucks at the Framingham Plaza, which is on the westbound side of the Mass Pike.
State Police say the suspect forced his way into the building via the door employees use. He was wearing a ski mask and was allegedly waving a handgun, demanded access to the safe, and took a significant amount of money.
Procopio said, he then exited through the same door and fled on foot down the truck access road that runs to the rear of the rest area.
Police were unable to find the suspect on residential streets behind the truck road and the rest area.
State Police are still reviewing video footage as part of the investigation.
