QUEENSTOWN, Md. - Police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a Queen's Anne County jewelry store at gunpoint.

Maryland State Police are hoping to get help from the public, to identify a man who they say, went into the Ultra Diamonds Jewelry Store, on Outlet Center Drive in Queenstown, around 8:00 PM on Sunday, with a gun, and left with dozens of pieces of jewelry.

According to the report, the suspect was wearing a clearly, fake disguise, consisting of an oversized suit jacket, a backpack on his chest, a dark wig with a fake beard, sunglasses, and a baseball cap. The suspect is described as a white male, about six feet tall, with a thin build, weighting between 180 and 200 pounds, possibly with short dark hair.

Police say once the suspect left the store, he went behind the shopping center, removed his disguise and put on a green and black riding jacket, with a multicolored helmet that had green and yellow duct tape holding the face shield on. He then apparently hopped onto a white, with silver stickers, Yamaha sport motorcycle, and fled the area.

The suspect was reportedly seen abandoning the motorcycle near Nesbit Road in Grasonville, and then fleeing into a wooded area. Authorities including MSP, Natural Resources Police, and Queen's Anne County Sheriff's Office, extensively searched the area using aerial and K-9 units, but they did not find the suspect.

Police did locate the motorcycle, which an investigation showed was stolen in Washington DC in 2010, and was using a stolen license plate as well.

Police say they have reason to believe that the suspect was seen by a number of people in the shopping center parking lot, before the robbery. They say his disguise was clearly fake, and he might have been acting suspicious by turning his head away from patrons.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen the suspect at the Outlets on Sunday, May 19th, should contact Maryland State Police's Centreville Barracks at 410-758-1101.

Investigators are also looking for any information about suspicious vehicles or people near the Chesapeake Motel, Nesbit Road, Blackbeard Road, Winchester Creek Road, Hissey Road, and Route 50 in Grasonville around that time.

Police make clear that no detail is too small, and any observation could be significant.
