Westminster man held in restaurant holdup

A Westminster man is being held at the Carroll County Detention Center in lieu of $150,000 bail in an armed robbery at a Westminster Subway shop, authorities said.

Westminster police arrested Brian Keith Scott, 36, of the 100 block of E. Main St. on Sunday after two Subway employees viewed a composite sketch and photo lineup, said Capt. Randy Barnes, a police spokesman.

A man entered the Subway in the College Square Shopping Center on WMC Drive shortly before 9:45 p.m. Saturday and handed the employee a brown paper bag with a note saying that he had a gun and demanding the money in the register, Barnes said.

The employee complied, and the man left, police said.

Scott was charged with two counts of armed robbery and one count of theft.

He also was charged with possession and distribution of controlled dangerous substances and equipment, Barnes said.

Police seek aid in robbery case

Police asked for the public's help yesterday in finding a man wanted in the robbery of a Baltimore County store last month.

Dion Lee Kuhn, 37, of no fixed address is wanted in the Dec. 16 robbery of Jack's Fine Foods in the 4900 block of Kenwood Ave., authorities said.

A man entered the store about 5:20 p.m. and grabbed the clerk, county police said. While holding an unknown object against the victim and implying that it was a weapon, the robber demanded money, police said. The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber ran out of the store. Detectives identified the suspect from a description given by the clerk, who said the man had been a frequent customer.

Police described Kuhn as white, 6 feet tall, with a medium build and brown eyes. He also has used the names Dion Lee Deal, Dean Huhn and Lloyd Barry Kuhn, police said. Police said Kuhn might be frequenting Highlandtown and East Baltimore.

Anyone with information is asked to call county police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-756-2587. Callers to Metro Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and might be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
