January 21, 1987

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.

One of the men was described as 35 to 40 years old, 5-foot-10, 170 pounds with blond hair and a mustache. He was wearing a blue jacket, jeans and a dark baseball cap. The second was described as about the same age and height, 180 pounds, with brown hair. He was wearing jeans, white tennis shoes and a blue-gray overcoat, Reinholtz, said.
