WASHINGTON — Police are searching for a man involved in an armed robbery at a Montgomery County candy store last week.

On July 21, a man walked into The Candy Man located at 1351 Lamberton Drive in Kemp Mill and asked the cashier for change for a dollar. The cashier opened the register and handed the change over to the man, who presented a knife.

At the time of the robbery, the suspect possibly had a chain hanging from his shorts.
