A man who said he had a gun robbed a Crofton 7-Eleven early yesterday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.
The man walked into the store in the 2000 block of Davidsonville Road about 1:10 a.m. He thrust his right hand in his coat pocket and told the clerk, Janet Marie Kelly, 18, that he had a gun and ordered her to give him money from the cash register and a time safe.
Ms. Kelly complied, and the bandit walked from the store, police said.
