A man stole two videocassette recorders and cigarettes Sunday afternoon from the Price Club and escaped, county police said.
Jackie J. Whitney, 37, an employee at the store in the 500 block of East Ordnance Road, told police the man came in around 4:30 p.m. and took the VCRs and cigarettes worth a total of $1,379. Some employees followed him to the parking lot and asked to see a receipt for the merchandise, but he refused, police said.
When the employees asked a second time, the man held up his fist as if to hit them. He tossed the goods in the back seat of a maroon 1986 Toyota Camry and drove off on Ordnance Road toward Ritchie Highway, police said. The employees gave police the car's Virginia tag numbers.
Burglars take property from home
Burglars broke into a Glen Burnie home Monday and stole more than $2,600 worth of property, county police said.
Edwin Ernest Arthur, 52, told police the burglary occurred between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The culprits broke into his garage by smashing a window pane. Once in the garage, they stole a $2,500 Cannon A-1 Digital 8 mm video camera from his unlocked 1984 Chevrolet van, police said.
They entered the house through an unlocked door and rummaged through several dresser drawers before taking $3.50 from a cup on top of the dresser. The thieves also took a $100 10-speed bicycle from the patio.
