2 men, both masked, rob Jessup McDonald's

March 17, 1995

Two masked men surprised employees of a Jessup fast-food restaurant when they slipped behind the counter and robbed them at gunpoint Wednesday night.

No one was injured in the robbery at the McDonald's in the 7800 block of Pocomoke Drive. Police say they do not believe the robbery is related to a series of similar armed robberies in the county since early December. Two of those occurred at the same restaurant.

According to police, a man wearing a ski mask and another man wearing a camouflage bandanna over his face entered the restaurant at 9 p.m. and walked behind the counter next to the door.

The men confronted a manager in the office, one of them displaying a revolver with a long barrel.

The men then took an undisclosed amount of money from a safe and registers, ripped phone cords from the wall and fled. They drove off in a gray car, possibly a Dodge Omni, police said.

Anyone with information should call Howard County police at 313-2236.
