By Howard Schwach
A Far Rockaway couple that allegedly robbed the Citigas Station on Beach Channel Drive last week was nabbed nearby the Marine Parkway Bridge thanks to a quartet of cops from the 100 Precinct.
According to official reports, Thomas Taylor, 27 and Kelly Oxer, 26, both of 711 Seagirt Avenue, robbed the gas station at about 4 a.m. on Thursday, September 12.
The clerk on duty at the station called 911 and Police Officers Bowden and McCabe responded to the call.
The two put out a call over the police frequency giving the description of the vehicle, its driver and passenger. They also reported that the two had fled westbound on Beach Channel Drive.
Police Officers Schierer and Shannon, who were on patrol nearby the Marine Parkway Bridge, heard the call and saw the vehicle heading over the bridge to Brooklyn and pulled it over.
The stolen money and a gun were reportedly recovered from the vehicle, and the two were arrested on robbery and gun charges.
