Remember when your parents were like, “We love you and we’re going to call the cops on you because we’d rather see you in jail than have us go to jail because we knew you robbed that place and didn’t say anything”?
Well, these parents did.
The parents of a 24-year-old Bethlehem man accused of robbing a Linden Street gas station Sunday afternoon identified him to police when they saw surveillance images from the robbery online, according to court records.
Andrew Bilheimer, who has no known address, is charged with robbing at gunpoint the Express Gas and Food Mart at 1353 Linden Street, using only a purple towel to partially shield his face.
Bilheimer allegedly entered the store about 1:53 p.m. Sunday, pulled a gun on the clerk and demanded money, police have said. The clerk, who was “in fear of his life,” forked over $1,000 from the cash register, arrest papers say.
Bethlehem posted surveillance video and photos from the robbery on social media sites after the incident. On Monday, Bilheimer’s parents, Laura and Robert Bilheimer, both called police to report the robber pictured in the surveillance images online was their son, records say. A Bethlehem police detective who had prior contact with Andrew Bilheimer also identified him from the photos and video, records say. SOURCE: The Express-Times
