January 18, 1998

A man in his late 30s with salt-and-pepper hair and a mustache was being sought by Howard County police yesterday as a suspect in the knifepoint robbery of an Ellicott City convenience store.

Police said he may be the same person who has robbed several stores in Carroll County recently.

The robber threatened an employee with a knife and demanded cash at the High's Dairy Store in the 9000 block of Frederick Road about 10: 05 p.m. Friday, then fled into the Dunloggin neighborhood with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police described the man as white, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, and wearing a mask.

Anyone with information was urged to call police at 410-313-3200.
