BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ – Three suspects have been arrested and charged for committing the
July 28th armed robbery of the 7-11 convenience store located at the intersection of Columbus Road and Neck Road.
The investigation began at approximately 3:13 AM when officers responded to the convenience store for a report of the attendant being robbed at gunpoint. The initial investigation revealed that three suspects were involved, two of which were armed with handguns. No injuries were reported, and the suspects fled the scene on foot with cash and cigarettes prior to police arrival.
Subsequent investigation by detectives revealed that this robbery was related to a similar 7-11 robbery in Edgewater Park on July 26th and one in Delran on July 29th. Detectives from all three agencies worked together to identify the following suspects:

• 14 year old male from Camden, NJ
All three suspects were arrested over the course of several days last week, culminating on August 3rd, with the assistance of the FBI Greater Trenton Safe Streets Task Force, the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit, and the Pennsylvania State Police/USMS Fugitive Task Force-Philadelphia Division.
The 14 year old male was arrested in Camden, NJ and is currently housed in the Camden County Youth Detention Center. He has been charged with robbery.
Kennedy and the 17 year old male were arrested in Reading, PA where they were found to be in possession of a stolen vehicle, three handguns, and evidence that links them to the robberies. Kennedy is currently housed at the Berks County Correctional Facility (PA). The 17 year old male is currently housed in the Abraxas Academy Shelter/Detention Facility (PA). They have both been charged with robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, aggravated assault, and theft.
