The Howard County Police Department is offering up to $500 for information regarding a robbery at a Columbia convenience store last week.

Police said that at approximately 2:35 a.m. Friday, May 31, a man entered a 7-Eleven in the 5700 block of Columbia Road, wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and a black mask covering his face. The man was carrying a handgun, police said.

According to police, the man approached an employee, handed him a bag and ordered the employee to empty the registers. The victim complied, according to police. Police said another employee was also confronted by the suspect, who then fled.
