September 23, 1990

County police are searching for two men who robbed an Odenton store Friday morning and drove off with the manager's car.

Police spokesman V. Richard Molloy said two men followed the morning manager into the Odenton Variety Store, in the 1600 block of Route 175, and forced him at gunpoint to open the safe.

After obtaining an undetermined amount of money, the men stole the manager's car, a 1990 Oldsmobile, and drove off. No one was injured.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 5 feet 5, 130 pounds, of slim build who was wearing a blue blazer or windbreaker.

The second suspect is a black male, 4 feet 9, 120 pounds wearing a red hooded sweat shirt and armed with a handgun.
