July 03, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

A man posing as a security guard stole $330 from a Glen Burnie Dunkin' Donuts restaurant Saturday by claiming he was checking for drug money, county police said.

Arvn Patel, an employee of the store in the 7100 block of Ritchie Highway, told police a man dressed in a security guard uniform walked into the store shortly before 11 p.m., said he was an agent of the "Federal Security Agency" and needed to record the serial numbers of all the $10 and $20 bills in the cash register as part of an investigation into drug money in the neighborhood.

Patel handed over the money to the man, who wrote down all the serial numbers, then said he needed to take the money to check for traces of drugs. The man ran with the money after Patel told him he wanted to call police to check his story, police said.
