Robbery in Irvona
Tuesday, December 24, 2013
COUNTY - Nobody was injured in a retail burglary last night in
Irvona. It was just after 8:15pm when a
man entered the dollar general store on Dorsey Avenue and poked a customer that
was checking out with what appeared to be a handgun inside of a bag. After
telling the customer to get moving, both the customer and the cashier fled the
front of the store and hid in the bathroom.
The suspect tried to open the cash register but failed, so he ripped the
register out of the counter and left with it.
The man is described as roughly 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds and was
wearing a tan coat, dark pants, boots and a ski mask. Anyone with information is asked to contact
state police in Clearfield.
