Woman may have robbed restaurant twice, police say

October 21, 1998

A woman who robbed the Eldersburg Taco Bell in the 1400 block of Liberty Road on Monday may be the same woman who robbed the restaurant this summer, state police say.

The robber is described as white and about 40 to 45. She has straight, dark-blond hair and a dark complexion, which appeared to be lined or wrinkled. She wore a red-and-white-plaid flannel shirt, or jacket.

Police said the woman drove to a drive-through window at 6: 55 p.m. in a dark blue or black four-door vehicle, possibly a Toyota Corolla. She ordered a cashier to keep the window open and, "Give me the money out of the drawer."

Although no weapon was displayed, the woman held a hand in her jacket pocket as if she had a handgun, police said.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, she drove away.

The woman's description matches that given by Taco Bell employees from a similar incident in the past two months, police said.

Anyone with information about either robbery may contact investigators at the Westminster barracks of the Maryland State Police at 410-848-3111.
