Three arrested for Medford armed robbery

Suffolk County Police arrested three men following an armed robbery at a Medford convenience store.

Zeeshan Masood entered 7-Eleven, located at 2725 Route 112, and robbed an employee of cash at gunpoint on Dec. 4 at approximately 1:40 a.m. Masood fled the store and got into a waiting Jeep Grand Cherokee, occupied by Walter Tinsley and Timothy Terry. A highway patrol officer observed the Jeep run a red light at the intersection of Route 112 and Express Drive South as it was fleeing the scene and pulled over the vehicle. Masood fled the vehicle on foot and Terry and Tinsley were taken into custody.

Approximately two hours later, police received a 911 call from a cameraman at the scene of the robbery reporting a man, possibly matching the description of the suspect, had approached him asking for a ride. Officers responded and Masood, who was riding a bicycle at the time, fled into the woods. Aviation Section officers located Masood and guided Canine Section officers to his location. Masood failed to respond to officers’ commands and was bitten by a police dog. He was transported to St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson for treatment. During a search of the Jeep, a loaded 40-caliber handgun was recovered.

Masood, Tinsley and Terry were charged with robbery 1st degree, criminal possession of a weapon 2nd degree and criminal use of a firearm 1st degree. Masood was also charged with resisting arrest, harassment 2nd degree and an outstanding warrant. Masood, 19, Tinsley, 18, and Terry, 18, all from Coram, were held at the Sixth Precinct and arraigned on Dec. 5 at First District Court in Central Islip.
