CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Cranston Police have identified an armed robbery suspect who jumped up on a freezer case inside a convenience store and demanded cash Tuesday afternoon.
Montrell Hopper, 19, of Providence is accused of holding up the Ocean State Market on Dyer Avenue in the city’s Arlington neighborhood about 2:30 p.m.
Surveillance video captured the disguised crook, with a bandana or cloth over his face, a floppy-brimmed hat on his head, and holding a red duffel bag, walking in as one customer was walking out.
While waiting for a clerk to comply, he became impatient and jumped up on the glass of freezer cases in front of the counter.
Hopper is wanted on two counts of first degree robbery, two counts of use of a firearm among other charges. Police say the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Cranston Police Detectives at 477-5147.
