Maryland State Police said today they were looking for two suspects in an armed robbery Thursday in Carroll County.

Police said the first suspect was a black male about 30 years old. He was described as 6 feet tall with a thin build and an unshaven face. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black T-shirt, black sweat pants, white shoes and wire rim glasses at the time of the robbery, police said.

The first suspect entered the High's store at 3949 Sykesville Rd. in Finksburg about 11 p.m Thursday, inquiring about merchandise and employment, police said. The cashier gave him an application and the suspect left, only to return 30 minutes later with the second suspect.

Police said the second suspect was also a black male about 30 years old. He was about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a stocky build and shaved head, wearing jeans and a red T-shirt with "PHAT" written across the front.

The first suspect announced he was armed, although no weapon was displayed. Both suspects took cash and cigarettes before they ran from the store and fled in a blue, four-door passenger car, investigators said.

Troopers from the state police Westminster barrack and deputies from the Carroll County Sheriff's Office said they responded to the scene about 11:30 p.m., but the suspects had already escaped.

Police urged anyone with information to contact the investigating officer at 410-386-3055.
