Two men have been arrested in Wednesday's holdup of the United Cable office in East Baltimore in which a gunman wearing a company uniform took $15,467, police said.

Ralph Remey, 33, an employee of the cable company who lives in the 400 block of E. Fayette St., and Reese Green Jr., 26, of the 3800 block of Ravenwood Ave., were arrested Thursday, police said.

Police allege that Mr. Green went to the cable company's office, in the 2500 block of Kirk Ave., about 7:20 p.m. dressed in Mr. Remey's uniform and carrying his identification card.

Mr. Green allegedly showed the identification card to gain entranceand once inside, he pulled out a .38-caliber handgun and announced, "You know what this is. Where's the money?" police said.

At Mr. Green's home, officers recovered $6,682 in cash allegedly taken in the robbery, four handguns and a United Cable uniform, police said.

Police are still trying to account for the rest of the money.

Both men were charged with robbery with a deadly weapon and use of a handgun in commission of a felony, police said. They were being held at the Northeastern District lockup last night awaiting bail hearings before a court commissioner.
