2 police officers given awards for arrests in restaurant robbery

Two county police officers assigned to the special operations section have been cited for arresting three men in connection with the robbery of a Glen Burnie Burger King.

The men later were linked to 33 other armed robberies in the Baltimore area.

Officers Scott Gall and James Teare were staking out the fast-food restaurant Aug. 27 in the wake of a rash of armed robberies in the area.

They watched three men rob the restaurant, in the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway, then arrested them in the parking lot just after they walked out the front door. The men were carrying a loaded automatic handgun and a pillowcase containing stolen money.

Both officers received Silver Stars during an awards banquet last week at Michael's Eighth Avenue.
