Montgomery Road Royal Farm robbed

January 27, 1994

A tall man wearing a ski cap robbed an Ellicott City convenience store early yesterday.

The man entered the Royal Farm Store in the 4200 block of Montgomery Road at 1:50 a.m., implied that he had a weapon and ordered the clerk to open the register. He snatched cash from the register and fled, police said.

The robber is described as a black male 6 feet 5 inches to 6 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 200 to 250 pounds. He was wearing a dark knit ski cap and a dark blue jacket.

No injuries were reported.

Although the suspect's description was similar to that of the man who robbed the Commercial and Farmer's Bank on Route 40 in Ellicott City Tuesday afternoon, Detective Sgt. Pete D'Antuono said the two crimes probably are not related.
