Two men rob rental store

County police are looking for two men who robbed a Glen Burnie furniture rental store Saturday afternoon after posing as customers.

The men entered Rent America, in the 7500 block of Ritchie Highway, asked about furniture rentals and spoke to customers, police said.

After all customers left, the men threatened the two employees with a silver automatic handgun, saying, "You know what this is, now give me your money."

The suspects forced the employees into a rear bathroom, then stole a Polaroid camera and cash from the register. When a customer came in, thinking the men were employees, the suspects ran away, police said.

Police described one suspect as a heavy-set black man in his 20s and the other as a black man with a medium build, also in his 20s.
