Howard County police are investigating the armed robbery of a Jessup convenience store Saturday night, when two men escaped with cash and lottery tickets.
At 8:50 p.m., the two men entered a High's store in the 7900 block of Washington Blvd. and approached the cashier. One of the men, who was armed, grabbed the woman and put a gun to her side while his partner ordered her to open both cash registers.
