November 17, 1998

A Hampstead teen-ager was freed on $15,000 bail after his arrest in connection with an armed robbery early Saturday.

Roy D. Lippy Jr., 18, of the 4300 block of Gross Mill Road, was charged with armed robbery, robbery, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of paraphernalia, court records show.

In charging documents, state police said a man entered the Amoco gas station and convenience store on Main Street at 5 a.m. Implying he had a gun in his jacket pocket, he demanded money from the salesclerk, police said.

After money was handed over, the man fled in a red pickup truck north on Route 30 toward Manchester, police said.

The truck's license plate number, provided by a witness, was broadcast on the police radio, and within an hour, Westminster officers found the truck outside apartments on Sullivan Road in Westminster.

The suspect was arrested about 6: 15 a.m. after he got into the truck and began to drive away, police said.
