A tall bandit, wearing a nylon stocking over his head to distort his features, escaped with an undisclosed amount of money after robbing the High's Dairy Store in Keymar yesterday.

The cashier, Juanita Elaine Reed of Taneytown, told state police she was opening the door of the store about 3:55 a.m. when she was surprised by a man who approached from behind and placed a hard object against her back.

She said he ordered her, in a deep voice, "Keep opening the door."

He forcing the woman inside the store. Then, she told police, he demanded, "Where's the safe?" and pushed her behind the counter.

Ms. Reed opened the safe, and placed the money in a large brown bag taken from a shelf near the register.

She was ordered to remain in the store while the robber fled.

Ms. Reed was not hurt, police said.

The store, at Route 77 and Francis Scott Key Highway, was robbed of an undisclosed amount of money about 5:20 a.m. Feb. 18, by a man with a knife.

Ms. Reed, who was also on duty then, was not injured in the earlier robbery, police said.
