Man wielding knife robs convenience store
A man armed with a knife robbed a Keymar convenience store of an undisclosed amount of money about 5:15 a.m. Friday, state police reported.
The store clerk, whom police did not identify, said a man walked into the High's store brandishing a knife and demanded the cash. The store is at the intersection of Routes 77 and 194 in a sparsely populated area of Carroll County.
The robber took the money and fled, apparently on foot, the employee told police.
The employee was working alone when the robbery occurred, police said.
Investigators said three troopers, a state police helicopter, a K-9 unit and Taneytown police responded to the call and searched the area for the robber without success.
Police said no one was injured in the robbery.
