Can the Standard Tap Security Cameras Catch This Armed Robbery Suspect?

standardtap

Last Thursday at 3:40 a.m.*, someone exited the Standard Tap in Northern Liberties and walked to his car, which was parked on Poplar Street between Front and 2nd streets. Shortly thereafter, say police, a man approached the car with a handgun.

The man robbed the victim of his wallet (which contained all of $10), his ID, and his cell phone. The suspect’s description, according to police: “Black male, dark complected, 6’0″, 160-175lbs., medium build, wearing a brown and tan hooded jacket covering the top of his forehead, baggy jeans, dark shoes…”


Fortunately, the Standard Tap was able to recover surveillance footage of the suspect from multiple cameras:

As of Wednesday, November 20th, no arrest had been made. If you have any information for police, they ask that you contact the East Detectives Division at 215-686-3243.

* The timestamp on the security camera reads 4:40 a.m., but police say that the armed robbery outside the Standard Tap occurred at 3:40 a.m.
