November 09, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A bearded man with a shotgun robbed the Holiday Inn on Washington Boulevard in Jessup of an undisclosed amount of cash yesterday morning, Howard County police said.

Police said the robber - a black man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-feet-6 to 5-feet-8 and 140 to 160 pounds - was wearing a dark jacket, blue jeans and a bandana over his head. He asked the front-desk employee for change and when the employee opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a shotgun and demanded all of the money, police said.

The man fled in an automobile, but police did not have a description of the car.

Metro Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the robbery. Police ask anyone with information to call 410-313-3200.
