Two men, one of them armed with a handgun, held up a building supply store Thursday morning, Hagerstown City Police said.

Two men entered Sellmore Industries, at 651 N. Prospect St., at 8:49 a.m. Thursday, showed a handgun and demanded money, police said. The men left with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police.

Police said the robber who displayed the gun was described as black, between 20 and 30 years old, 6 feet, 1 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, with a skinny, but muscular build. He was wearing a long-sleeved, olive green pullover shirt and a green pullover mask, police said.

Police said a second man was described as black, between 20 and 30 years old, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 230 pounds. He was wearing a white T-shirt, an American flag bandanna and black and blue Nike running shoes, police said.


Uniformed and plain-clothes police officers searched the area to no avail.

Police also were looking for a third man, seen in the area in a blue, four-door Pontiac or Oldsmobile, who they said might be connected to the robbery.

Police described him as a black male, between 20 and 30 years-old, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with a muscular build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, a baseball hat and baggy blue jeans.

No arrests had been made by late Thursday and no suspects were identified, a police spokesman said Thursday evening.

Police ask that anyone with information on the armed robbery call the Criminal Investigation Division at 301-790-3700, ext. 234.
