Argument over change leads to theft

October 01, 2012|By Mary Gail Hare, The Baltimore Sun

A liquor store clerk in Annapolis tried to contact city police to mediate a dispute about a customer's change. He never completed the call and police are looking for the unidentified woman, who struck the clerk on the head and stole his phone Friday evening.

The customer argued with the clerk about the change she received from a purchase at the store in the 200 block of West Street at Madison Place. When the argument continued, the clerk attempted to call 911 on his cell phone. The woman struck him mid-call on the head, most likely with the bag of her bottled purchases, police said. She grabbed the phone from the stunned clerk and fled. The suspect will also face assault charges, police said.
