2 CHARGED IN HOLDUPS
Two men already charged this month in a rash of robberies in Howard County were charged last week with the holdup of a Sykesville pharmacy and an Eldersburg video store.
State police last week charged Nicholas Alexander Vennari of Ellicott City and Kenneth Ray Perkins of Baltimore with the Sept. 6 robbery of the Show Time video store on Liberty Road.
Perkins, 20, and Daniel Mark Berman of Columbia were charged earlier in the week by Sykesville police for the Aug. 23 robbery of McDougal's Pharmacy.
Inboth robberies, only toy guns were used, police said.
