Restaurant held up by armed robbers


Two bandits went into an Annapolis restaurant Sunday, stole an undisclosed amount of money at gunpoint and herded the employees into a walk-in freezer, county police said yesterday.

According to the police report, the robbers walked into Morrison's restaurant in the 100 block of Jennifer Road at 8:51 p.m., held a gun to the cashier's head and ordered the cashier to put money into a bag.

The two also robbed four of the 12 employees in the restaurant and ordered them all into the walk-in freezer. They put a metal storage shelf in front of the freezer door before fleeing, police said.

The employees managed to free themselves after about five or 10 minutes and called police.
