GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP NJ (April 30, 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--On April 13-2018, at approximately 02:10 AM, GTPD responded to the 7-Eleven Convenient Store, 508 E. Church Street for a reported armed Robbery.  The suspect had approached the counter and asked for a pack of Newport 100’s cigarettes. He then demanded money from the store clerk and motioned to his waistband as if he has a weapon.
