Wendy's in Laurel is robbed at gunpoint

September 30, 1997

Two men with semiautomatic handguns robbed a Wendy's restaurant in Laurel of an undisclosed amount of money Saturday, county police said.

Employees of the restaurant, on Russett Green, told police they were cleaning up about 1: 30 a.m., after closing, when two men appeared at the counter. The manager told police he had locked the doors and that the men waited in a bathroom or had a key. There were no signs of forced entry.

The gunmen forced three workers into a walk-in refrigerator, then ordered the manager to empty the contents of the cash drawers and a safe into a black bag, police said.

The manager complied, and the gunmen forced him into the refrigerator before leaving, police said.

Officers did not have a description of the gunmen.
