Here’s the full release from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:

(Bel Air, MD)  At approximately 4:45pm on Tuesday, April 26, 2011, Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an armed robbery that had just occurred at JC’s Paintball located in the 100 block of Tollgate Road in Bel Air, MD.   The two suspects entered the store, threatened the storeowner and a juvenile employee with a knife before proceeding to steal an assortment of paintball guns, CO2 cartridges, paintball masks and various paintball supplies.

Both  suspects are described as two white males in their early to mid 20’s who had applied heavy spray on tan applications (described a dark bronze/black in color) in order to disguise themselves.
•  Suspect one is described as approximately 5’11” tall with a thin build and facial hair on the chin.  He was wearing a light blue long sleeved shirt, dark blue jeans, boot styled shoes, tan baseball cap over a doo rag.
•  Suspect two is described as approximately 5’8” tall with a medium build wearing a red long sleeve shirt, black cargo pants, boot style shoes, oversized dark sunglasses  and a
black doo rag.
They fled the store in an unknown direction, in an early 1990’s style red SUV with Maryland tags, possibly a Chevy Blazer with slight damage to the paint on the front of the vehicle.  Investigators have reason to believe that the suspects may reside in or around the Arbutus area.
