Philadelphia Police released surveillance video on Monday in an attempted to identify two men who allegedly stole a “large sum of cash” from a delivery vehicle while the driver was inside an Ogontz Avenue gas station.
The theft occurred just after 2:30 p.m. May 30 outside the Gulph gas station located at 7100 Ogontz Ave.
After the driver left his vehicle, “two unknown males exited a white van and approached the complainant’s delivery van on the driver’s side,” according to a police press release.
“One of the suspects enters the complainant’s van and removes a large white back which contained a large sum of cash while the other suspect acts as a look-out,” it continued.
The pair then got back in their van and fled the area, according to police.
One of the alleged thieves is described as a 5-foot 11-inch tall, fortysomething black man with a heavy build who was wearing a light-colored or white T-shirt and dark pants.
The other is described as a 5-foot 9-inch tall black man in his twenties with a stocky build; he was wearing a light-colored T-shirt and light-colored Capri shorts.
