Two people responsible for an armed robbery at the McDonald's in New Market Sunday night are still at large, according to a press release from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.  

The robbery occurred around 8:30 p.m. at the McDonald's at 11700 Morning Gate Lane when a man and a woman reportedly approached the restaurant on foot from the direction of the Woodspring at New Market neighborhood. The woman — described in the press release as 5 feet, 8 inches tall and in her mid-30s with a slender build — ordered a drink from the cashier. After the cashier opened the register drawer, both suspects brandished handguns and pointed them at the cashier.

The man — described as 6 feet tall with blue eyes and a blond goatee — took an undisclosed amount of money from the register. They then ran away in the same direction from which they arrived.

Deputies are currently conducting an investigation and asking that anyone who has information about the robbery to contact Detective Joshua Stears at, or at 240-674-7677. The case reference number is 21-14049.

Actually not a bad idea for a book deal.


Amazingly the dude, in a time when it is perfectly acceptable to wear a mask covering most of your face, did not do so.




I feel bad for the employees... how scary. These idiots likely stole less than $100 bucks- but have traumatized an entire staff. [thumbdown]


Luckily this occurred during the Biden Administration and both these redeemables registered their guns and it will only be a matter of time before they're apprehended peacefully. Then maybe we can give them a job at the McDonald's so the other employees can empathize with their condition and not be afraid of them anymore.


OK Buckso.


If this had occurred during the Trump administration he would have branded them "losers" for not robbing someplace with more money. And then he would have offered them appointments at DOJ.


And their jobs will pay $15 an hour too.

Brutish thugs. Both.


Morons! I do hope the $200 they stole was worth the years they'll both spend in jail.


It looks like they are wearing one another's coats. The coats are similar. So close to the highway, these two could be far from the scene by now.


It seems like there’s not really that much money in a McDonald’s drawer. People using plastic to pay.


Big time drug problems to do something this brazen.


Yah, most probably they wanted a different special sauce.

Looks like they were both wearing their masks while making an unauthorized withdrawal. What's the problem? ( sarcasm alert)
