According to Lavallette Police Sgt. Justin Lamb, Evan J. Carlock, 26, of Fairview, N.J., was the man behind the June 13 incident, during which a gas attendant at the Kelly’s Sea-Bay Sunoco gas station was approached by the suspect at gunpoint demanding money.

The Lavallette Police Department contacted the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department for K9 assistance and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, but a search was unsuccessful in locating the suspect at the time of the initial robbery. Afterward, the longer investigation took place.

Carlock was charged with first degree armed robbery and third degree unlawful possession of a weapon. He was subsequently placed in custody, processed, and transported in lieu of bail to the Ocean County Jail, Lamb said.
