Last night around 11:34PM, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) responded to 1154 Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester for an armed robbery in progress. En route, officers were given a description of the suspect as a white female with brown hair, black jacket and blue jeans and told that that the suspect had used a knife in the robbery and fled in a green caravan. On arrival, officers spoke to the victim who reported that the suspect, who is a frequent customer of the store/gas station initially walked in to the store, picked up two Oreo snacks and walked to the counter. The victim further explained that the suspect placed two dollars on the counter but once the clerk started ringing her items, she pulled out a knife and threatened the victim exclaiming, “Stay away from the register! I’m gonna kill you!!” The suspect then reached over the counter and took an undetermined amount of money from the cash register and fled the scene in a green minivan. Officers were further advised that the suspect had fled down a side street next to the gas station into Port Norfolk. Other officers responding to the call were entering Port Norfolk on Teanan St. when they observed a dark colored minivan traveling a at high rate of speed almost striking the marked cruiser. Officers then turned their marked cruiser around to effect a traffic stop in order to further investigate this car due to the speed that the car was traveling and the fact that it closely resembled the described car driven by the suspect from the robbery. Officers conducted a traffic stop of the motor vehicle at 710 Morrissey Blvd. and there observed that the operator closely matched the description of the suspect. Officers asked the operator for her license and registration and she responded that she did not have either. Based on the operator’s resemblance to the suspect and her nervous behavior, officers asked for additional suspect description. Officers were then told that the suspect had a receding hairline with short brown hair matching the operator’s appearance. Officers then decided to have the victim brought to their location for a possible identification. The victim was brought back to the scene, and as soon as the victim saw the suspect yelled out, “Yup that’s her, that’s her!” The suspect, Jennifer L. Hill, 36, of Wesley was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery of a Convenience Store, and Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon.
