Pizza Hut manager robbed of store's cash
Howard County police are searching for a gunman who ordered a Pizza Hut manager back into the closed restaurant early Saturday on Baltimore National Pike, then stole an undetermined amount of cash.
At about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, a Pizza Hut manager was approached by a man in the parking lot of the restaurant, in the 10100 block of Baltimore National Pike, police said. The robber said he had a gun and ordered the manager back into the closed restaurant, police said.
