Big Red robbed twice in one day
A man with a gun robbed the Big Red gas station Wednesday in Pasadena -- less than 11 hours after a man was arrested for breaking into the same station.
County police said a man entered the station at about 1:25 p.m., pulled a gun from his pants and demanded money. After clerks gave him the money, the man made all of them lie on the floor until he was gone.
The man was seen leaving the station in a white Dodge Shadow with another man inside.
Police described the man as black, about 6 feet tall, wearing sunglasses and a red bandanna with a dark shirt.
Earlier that same day, about 3:15 a.m., county police charged Robert Lee Hayes, 35, of the 100 block Old Annapolis Road in Glen Burnie, with breaking into the station.
The police said an officer on patrol in the area of East Shore Road saw a man walking with two bags that contained cartons of cigarettes. The man had cuts on his hands.
The cigarettes were found to have come from the gas station. When officers checked the station, the police said, they found broken glass with blood on it.
