Armed man robs McDonald's at drive-through window

September 27, 1996

A man posed as a customer at the drive-through window of an Odenton McDonald's Wednesday and robbed the restaurant of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

An employee of the restaurant in the 1500 block of Annapolis Road, told police that she was working at the window about 4: 30 p.m. when a man ordered an orange juice.

When the man pulled up to the window, he drew a gun, pointed it at her and demanded all the money from the register, police said.

The employee complied and the man drove east on Annapolis Road, police said.

An officer discovered the thief's car a short time later on the shoulder of westbound Route 32. It had been stolen from Washington, police said. Police called in K-9 units and a state police helicopter to search nearby woods, but they did not find the robber.

The gunman was described as black, in his early to mid 20s, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall and weighing about 215 pounds. He had a round face, light complexion, dark brown eyes, sandy-brown close-cut hair, thin mustache and thin lips. He was wearing a black jacket with an orange lining.
