In the second robbery at the store in less than a month, two males robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store at 19340 Leitersburg Pike on Wednesday night, according to a Washington County 911 supervisor and Maryland State Police.

The males went around the building after the robbery and a police dog picked up a scent from the men but lost it, the supervisor said.

No weapon was reported to have been used in the robbery, which was called in at 7:29 p.m., the supervisor said.

The first male was described as more than 6 feet tall and was wearing a black and gray hooded coat, blue jeans, black and gray sneakers and a black mask covering his face, according to a state police news release.

The second male was under 6 feet tall, according to police. He was wearing a burgundy hooded sweat shirt, blue jeans, black sneakers and a white mask covering his face, the release said

Washington County Sheriff's deputies and Hagerstown Police officers assisted state troopers in their search for the two males.

Anyone with information about this investigation is urged to contact the Maryland State Police Hagerstown Barrack-Criminal Investigation Section at 301-766-3859 or 301-766-3800.

The store was robbed on Dec. 12 when a man entered the store, went behind the counter and demanded money from the cashier, state police said. He did not display a weapon, according to police.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled the store and was last seen running from the rear of the store, police said.

That robbery of the store just north of Long Meadow Shopping Center was reported at 1:53 a.m.
