December 04, 1997

A man posing as a customer at a 7-Eleven in Severn early yesterday robbed the store of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

Mesfin Bodea, an employee of the store in the 2600 block of Annapolis Road, told police the man walked in about 1: 30 a.m. and brought some items to the counter. When Bodea opened the register, the man pulled out a black handgun and demanded money, police said.

Bodea handed over money and the man fled. The suspect is described as white, about 30 years old, 6 feet tall with a medium build and a red goatee. He was wearing a dark blue or black baseball cap, a white Notre Dame T-shirt, a black denim jacket with a Marlboro logo and white pants.
