Police in Carroll sharing data on robberies with Howard

October 17, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

After comparing notes with Howard County officers, state police investigators in Westminster aren't certain if one or more men are involved in a series of convenience store and pizza shop robberies in both counties during the past two months.

Witnesses in five incidents in Carroll County and several more in Howard have been unable to provide a definitive description of the suspect.

"Some similarities suggest it's the same guy, but we haven't gotten any videotapes to be able to determine if we're dealing with one or more individuals," said Tfc. William Corun, a detective at the Westminster barracks.

The latest robbery, at the 7-Eleven in the 7600 block of Woodbine Road in Woodbine, occurred Sunday. A man fled about 10 p.m. with a small amount of money after displaying what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun.

Robberies in Carroll occurred Oct. 1 at Domino's Pizza in Eldersburg; Sept. 30 at a High's store in Sykesville; Aug. 7 at a High's store in Gamber; and Aug. 6 at a High's store in Eldersburg.
