Gunman robs Elkridge service station

March 07, 1995

A gunman threated a clerk at an Elkridge gasoline station and fled with cash Sunday morning, Howard County police said.

No one was injured in the robbery, police said.

The man walked into the store at the Steuart Agip station in the 7300 block of U.S. 1 at 9:45 a.m. Sunday and wandered around before approaching the employee. He then pulled out a .38-caliber revolver and demanded cash, police said.

When the clerk turned over cash, the robber ran out of the store and drove off in a brown American-made pickup truck with damage to its right rear end, police said.

The robber was described as a slim white male, 6 feet tall, with dark blond hair and a goatee. He was wearing a red and black flannel jacket.
