Local police are investigating a robbery at a Chevron gas station (11410 North Shore Drive).

On Wednesday night, a man dressed in dark clothing demanded money while displaying a weapon, according to a preliminary investigation by the Fairfax County Police Department. No injuries were reported, but an undisclosed amount of money was taken.

A police officer arrived on the scene at 8:31 p.m., three minutes after receiving a report about the incident. Officers, K-9 units and Fairfax 1, the county’s helicopter, assisted with the search.

The police department is working on getting video footage of the incident. A spokesperson did not release the amount of money taken during the robbery.

Anyone with information should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).

    Well, that’s karma I guess. They sure robbed me.

    (Lesson Learned: Never let those guys inspect your car. And if you do let them inspect your car, for God’s sake don’t let them actually repair your supposedly defective brakes. And if you do let them repair your brakes, budget for double the price they quote you and then just go ahead and make an appointment with your dealer to repair their “repairs.” Because you’ll need to do that.)

    Rented a U-Haul there on short notice. Nice family run business.
