Armed With Hammer, Man Robs Joppa Area Sex Shop

Police responded to the Love Craft store on Pulaski Highway, south of the Harford County line and north of White Marsh, Saturday evening.

Police say a man armed with a hammer robbed a sex shop in the Joppa area Saturday evening. 

At about 6:17 p.m., in the 12000 block of Pulaski Highway, a man entered the Love Craft store, threatened workers with a hammer and stole some property. No one was injured during the robbery, according to Baltimore County police. 

No description of the suspect or property stolen was immediately available. 

As of 8 p.m., the investigation into the robbery was ongoing, police said. 

The Joppa community is almost entirely included in Harford County, although a small portion is included in Baltimore County. The store's location is in Baltimore County, north of White Marsh and Kingsville. 

The Harford County Sheriff's Office confirmed that they were working with Baltimore County in investigating the robbery. 

Love Craft is a Baltimore metro area chain that sells pornography, lingerie and sex toys.

This sentence makes absolutely no sense. If the robbery occurred when someone entered the store and the robbery occurred in the Joppa community, then how can the store also be located in Baltimore County?

I rephrased it, maybe this helps: The Joppa community is almost entirely included in Harford County, although a small portion is included in Baltimore County. The store's location is in Baltimore County, north of White Marsh and Kingsville.

I guess he needed some vibrators for Christmas gifts!

Some one should inform him porn is free on the Internet.

Really a hammer? Obviously someone making a "Hot Topic," point about weapons and gun control- someone should have smacked this moron with one of the larger Dildo's they sell!

Pornography is rather an inflamatory word, perhaps erotica would be more appropriate.

At least he was smart enough to stay out of MidWay.

We need hammer control laws.
Terri December 16, 2012 at 07:35 PM
If we pass an anti-tool law, that would eliminate the 2 legged variety as well. Good one, Jon!
Eric Martin December 16, 2012 at 07:38 PM
I agree, Joni. People should not be allowed to walk the streets with hammers. No one but a trained, licensed contractor should be allowed to possess a hammer, especially assault hammers.

Joni, I love your comment!
Bill Howard December 19, 2012 at 06:38 PM
I have a hammer with a claw on the back. Will that be banned as an assault hammer?
