Two masked gunmen escaped with $1,500 from a Huntington Beach finance office after tying up four employees and stealing one of their cars, police said Tuesday.
The two men entered Beneficial California Inc. at 16121 Beach Blvd. at 4 p.m. Monday. Office manager Larry Ryberg said that one of them "stuck a gun in my nose and said, 'This is a holdup.' "
The robbers used duct tape to tie the employees and then took cash from drawers and two of the employees and fled in an employee's Pontiac, Ryberg said.
Police found the car around the corner on Edinger Avenue with the engine still running and with the bandannas that the robbers had used for masks inside, Police Lt. Jack Reinholtz said.
