August 19, 1994

Howard County police are looking for a man who robbed a Jessup convenience store Wednesday night while implying he had a gun under his shirt.

About 9:35 p.m. Wednesday, the masked suspect entered the High's store in the 7900 block of Washington Blvd. and approached a clerk at the register. Police say the suspect placed his hand under his shirt to suggest he was armed.

The man ordered the clerk to turn over cash. He took the undisclosed amount of money and fled. No one was injured in the robbery, said spokesman Sgt. Steve Keller.

County police and the Maryland State Police K-9 unit searched the area near the store after the robbery, but could not find the man. Police are not sure that the robber actually had a gun, Sergeant Keller said.
