Customer returns to rob store: Police

Matt Zapotosky

A man went shopping at Pier One Imports in Laurel on Saturday night.

According to a store employee, he purchased a few items and left -- then came to get his money back the hard way.


Holding a black handgun, the man ordered a female Pier One employee to the ground, then took cash from the cash register, police said.

He fled on foot, and remains at large.
