Man with needle robs Wal-Mart

September 23, 1996

A man wielded a hypodermic needle to rob a 24-hour Wal-Mart in Glen Burnie of unknown items early yesterday, but no one was injured, Anne Arundel County police said.

About 3: 30 a.m., a man entered the store at 6721 Chesapeake Center Drive and filled an empty bag with several items, police said.

When he tried to leave through a locked side exit and an assistant manager refused to unlock the door, the man raised a hypodermic needle above his head and insisted that the door be opened, police said.

The man drove off in a small black vehicle on Ritchie Highway.
