Penn Jersey 989 W. Pennsylvania Ave – Plainfield Twp
At approximately 10:57pm on April 30, 2017, SBRPD was dispatched to a report of an ARMED ROBBERY at the Penn Jersey gas station/convenience store in Plainfield Twp. The robbery occurred at approximately 10:30pm. The male clerk advised officers that a W/M came in to the store demanding cash and cigarettes. The male entered the store, lifted up his sweatshirt to reveal a silver handgun tucked in his waistband. After taking cash (approx.. $860) and several cartons of cigarettes, the male fled out of the front of the store to a vehicle, possibly a crossover type vehicle. The vehicle then fled south on Rte 512 toward Wind Gap. The male was described as being approx.. 6ft – 6’3” tall, wearing a hooded medium blue jacket, green brimmed baseball hat and a red bandanna covering his face. The suspect appears to be the same as other armed robberies in the area. SBRPD will be coordinating investigations with these departments.
