An 18-year-old New Windsor man was charged yesterday with an early-morning robbery this month at a Westminster gasoline station, city police said.

Stephen Michael Manning of the 100 block of Church St. was arrested yesterday at his home on charges stemming from the robbery of the Cranberry Exxon station, in the 300 block of Baltimore Blvd. (Route 140), at 1 a.m. April 4, police said. He was in custody last night at the Carroll County Detention Center on 11 charges, including armed robbery, conspiracy, carrying a deadly weapon, assault and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

According to police, a man wearing a dark trench coat and mask pointed a shotgun at employees, from whom he took an undisclosed amount of money before running away. A trench coat, a homemade mask, a .20-gauge shotgun and shells, 10 packages of suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia were recovered in a search yesterday, police said. They said more arrests were pending.
