Frederick, Md (KM) A suspect has been taken into custody for Monday’s robbery of the Seven-Eleven store in the 5700 block of Buckeystown Pike where a knife was used..

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says an individual armed with a knife entered the establishment after 12:00 noon, and robbed the store. He got away in an Audi SUV. The owner of that vehicle was contacted, and told authorities the SUV was being serviced at a car dealership.

A patrol deputy located the vehicle at the car dealership, but it was unoccupied. . Detectives and deputies began interviewing the employees. While doing so, they learned that Hooks had taken another vehicle from their lot.

An hour later, the vehicle was returned. A employee approached deputies and said Hooks had returned to the dealership and was trying to leave through a back door.
