Police are seeking man who robbed High's store

Howard County police are looking for a man who robbed an Elkridge High's store Tuesday afternoon by threatening employees with a handgun, police said.

The man was described as black, in his mid-20s to 30s, 5-feet-8-inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds. He wore a multicolored shirt, dark pants and carried a motorcycle helmet, police said.

About 4 p.m. on Tuesday, the man entered the store in the 6200 block of Washington Blvd. and handed a note to one of the two female employees behind the counter.

Police said the man then raised his shirt to reveal the handgun, and the employees gave him $50 in cash.

The suspect forced both employees into a storage room before fleeing south on Washington Boulevard in a gray two-door car, police said.


* Elkridge: 7400 block of Washington Blvd.: A rear door of the Trinity Episcopal church was pried open, and microwave ovens, a refrigerator, a ceiling fan and a chandelier were stolen late Saturday or early Sunday, police said.
