June 04, 1993|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

A man armed with a semiautomatic weapon escaped yesterday with an undetermined amount of cash from the First Financial Federal Credit Union, in the Crossroad Square Shopping Center on Baltimore Boulevard in Westminster.

The robbery was the year's first holdup at a financial institution in Carroll County.

Westminster police described the robber as a thin black man in his early 20s, about 6-foot-5, wearing blue jeans, a faded short-sleeved red T-shirt and a navy blue baseball cap that he had on backward.

Police said the man carried what appeared to be a 9 mm pistol.

The man entered the credit union about 11:30 a.m., pointed the handgun at a teller and demanded cash. There were no customers in the credit union, and no one was injured, police said.

Witnesses outside provided investigators with additional information about the robber.

The FBI and Westminster police detectives are continuing the investigation.

Police were preparing a composite picture of the robber from an Ident-a-kit.
