Two convenience stores robbed Saturday night

January 10, 1995

Howard County police are investigating robberies at two Ellicott City convenience stores Saturday night, but they do not believe the robberies are related.

In the first incident, a man in the High's store in the 10100 block of Route 40 reached into an open cash register, took the cash and then fled. He was last seen driving eastbound on nearby Frederick Road about 6:15 p.m., police said.

The man was described as a black male, 30 to 40 years old, about 6 feet 2 inches tall and about 150 pounds.

About four hours later, a man in the Shell Mini Mart store in the 8500 block of Route 40 pushed a clerk away from an open cash register and took all the money. He drove eastbound on Route 40 in a white and gray Chevrolet Z-24, police said.

The robber was described as a black male with a thin build wearing dark pants and a checkered shirt.
