$1,000 reward offered in restaurant robbery
The Harford County Crime Solvers group is offering up to $1,000 in reward for arrests and indictments in the robbery of the Edgewood Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the 2000 block of Pulaski Highway Sept. 27.
Three youths, one armed with a sawed-off shotgun, entered the establishment at 9 p.m. and demanded employees open the cash register and safe. One man vaulted the counter and took an undisclosed amount of money before the three fled in a dark-colored, four-door sedan, heading east in the westbound lanes of U.S. 40. Witnesses said each robber was about 17 and about 5 feet 10 inches tall.
Anyone with information about this incident should call the Crime Solvers hot line (410) 877-STOP. Callers need not give their names or appear in court.
