Robbers storm Olney Forman Mills

December 3, 2008 8:33:19 AM PST
Two robbers, one armed with a gun, stormed into the Forman Mills store in Olney early Wednesday morning and forced an employee to open the safe.

Police say the suspects waited outside the store on Rising Sun and Adams avenues until a member of the overnight crew unlocked the front door to let a worker out of the store.

When that happened at about 3 AM, the two suspects rushed the door.

The robbers made several employees go into a storage room where they tied them up, then forced another employee to open the store's safe.

The suspects made off with about $11,000. The employees were not injured during the robbery.

Police are interviewing the workers to get descriptions of the robbers.

So far, police have only said that one robber wore a green hoodie, the other, a black hoodie. The two men remain on the loose.

There's no word yet on whether the store will open today.
