Maryland Man Sentenced in Series of 7-11 Robberies 

Loudoun County, VA (November 13, 2019) – A Maryland man was sentenced to 18 years and 8 months in the Virginia Department of Corrections in connection with a series of armed robberies targeting 7-Eleven convenience stores in Northern Virginia.  

The suspect was identified through a multi-jurisdictional effort between the Fairfax County Police Department, the Town of Leesburg Police Department and the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. 

In Loudoun County, Carlton L. Frye, III, 23, of Lanham, MD, was arrested in October 2018 in connection with the September 3, 2018 robberies of the 7-Eleven in the 100 block of Dry Mill Road and the 7-11 in the 700 block of Fieldstone Drive in Leesburg, and a third robbery at the 7-Eleven in the 46100 block of Woodshire Drive in Sterling. 

Frye was found guilty last week of three counts of armed robbery and three counts of use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.  A Loudoun County Circuit Court Judge imposed an additional fifteen years suspended time and further ordered he pay restitution upon his release. 

The Prince William County Police Department, the Prince George’s County Police Department, and the U.S. Marshals Service assisted in the investigation.
