Richard Montgomery High School student arrested in armed robbery of gas station in Gaithersburg


Rockville City police officers converged on Richard Montgomery High School Monday, and arrested a student in connection with the February 20, 2023 armed robbery of a Gaithersburg gas station. Jeffrey Gabriel Johnson, 18, of Rockville was taken into custody at the school without incident. Johnson has been charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, and second-degree assault. He is being held at the County's Central Processing Unit.

Detectives allege that Johnson and an accomplice entered the convenience store at the Summit Shell gas station at 15 South Summit Avenue at 9:52 AM on February 20, which was a school holiday. One of the two - police have not said which one - pulled a knife from his waistband. He allegedly ran behind the counter, threatened the cashier with the knife, and demanded he open the cash register. 

The clerk opened the cash drawer, and the armed suspect grabbed an unspecified amount of cash. Both suspects then ran out of the store. The second suspect, also an African-American male, has not been publicly identified by police and remains at large. Given that the police statement does not ask for the public's help in finding him, it's likely detectives know who they are looking for.
