February 06, 1997

A man who implied he had a weapon robbed an Annapolis furniture store and its clerk of $90 Tuesday, county police said.

The unidentified clerk at Jennifer Convertibles in the 2400 block of Solomon's Island Road told police a man walked into the store just after 8 p.m. and asked where the safe and the money were.

The clerk told the man that there was no safe, but she gave him $10 from the petty cash container and $80 of her own money, police said. The woman told police that the man did not display a weapon but that he had his hand tucked inside his coat as if he were concealing one.

The man ran through the back door into the woods behind the shopping center, police said.
