Gas station robbed in morning holdup

November 22, 1994

A clerk at the Ridgeville Gas & Go station was forced to open a safe and turn over an undisclosed amount of money to a robber about 5:45 a.m. yesterday.

State police said they were called to the station in the first block of Ridgeville Blvd. by the clerk, who said he was opening the office when a man put a hard object against his back, forced him inside the building and demanded money.

The clerk placed the cash in a bank bag and the robber fled.

Police said they were told that a second man may have been outside the office during the holdup. The victim was able to give police only a sketchy description of the robber.

Investigators ask anyone who saw a vehicle or the robber at the station yesterday morning to call the Westminster barracks at 848-3111.


* Mount Airy: Firefighters from Mount Airy responded to a car leaking gasoline on Interstate 70 in Howard County at 7:17 a.m. yesterday. They were out for 15 minutes.
