Downtown days on Wednesday promote stores

Tomorrow and the next several Wednesdays have been dubbed "downtown days" by the president of the Glen Burnie Improvement Association, part of a project to stir interest in stores in the downtown area.

GBIA President Muriel Carter has suggested that people interested in browsing and eating lunch downtown meet her -- or organize their own group -- at 10 a.m. any Wednesday this month at the Glen Burnie Improvement Association building, Crain Highway at First Avenue.

Mrs. Carter said she and about five others walked in the urban renewal district and nearby areas last Wednesday. For more information, call 766-6760.

3 robbed at gunpoint as they leave store

Three people were held up at gunpoint over the weekend as they were leaving the Levitz Furniture store in the first block of Orchard Road, county police said yesterday.

Officers said they are unsure whether the same gunman was responsible for both crimes.

In the first robbery, a Glen Burnie couple was leaving the store about 8 p.m. Friday when a man armed with a gun approached them and took the woman's purse.

Saturday afternoon, a Pasadena woman was leaving the store about 1:55 p.m. when a gunman approached and threatened to kill her if she did not give him her purse, police said.

The woman screamed and the gunman grabbed her purse and ran.


* Harundale: Burglars broke into the Magic Rent to Own store in the 7400 block of Ritchie Highway Thursday, but it is not known what was taken.

* Stoney Beach: Someone stole two pedigreed dogs from a fenced yard in the 1300 block of Cox Grove Court Saturday. One was a keeshond named Kelsie, worth $400, and the other was a Pomeranian named Toby, worth $250.
