November 25, 1993

A Glen Burnie store was robbed Tuesday by a man who wore a hooded sweat shirt and had a dirty yellow bandanna over his face.

According to a county police report, a man walked into the Carpet Fair store in the 7100 block of Ritchie Highway at 5:20 p.m. and ordered the store manager to the floor. The manager complied, got up to open the cash drawer, then returned to the floor.

After taking an undetermined amount of cash, the robber told the manager, "You better stay right there. If you follow me out, my partners are going to blow you away."

Witnesses saw the man ride away on a moped, heading north on Crain Highway.

Police described the man as white, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall and 20 to 30 years old. He was wearing beige pants, a navy blue hooded sweat shirt with the hood pulled over his head and a dirty yellow bandanna over his mouth and nose.
