Woman Robbed By Man Claiming To Be Utility Worker

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County police say a man claiming to be a utility company employee robbed a woman at gunpoint in her Glen Burnie home.

The woman told police about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday, a man came to her home, flashed an identity card and said he was from Pepco, a utility that does not serve Anne Arundel County.

Police said the robber told the woman he was there to check on a gas leak.

Once inside, the man pulled a gun and robbed the woman. He fled in a car parked around the corner.

Police say utility company workers do not make unannounced house calls.
