Pigeon Toed Man Robs Cressona Convenience Store at Gunpoint
At about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, State Police at Schuylkill Haven say a tall, thin, white man entered the Mobil store at 20 Pottsville St., Cressona. That’s the convenience store at Cressona’s one and only traffic light not on Route 61.
He wore a tan, hooded, zip-up jacket and a pair of blue jeans. The man also wore a black face mask and walked pigeon-toed. State Police released this image taken from store security footage. They say he stands between 6-foot and 6-foot, 4 inches tall. Here’s a look at the big fella:
The alleged robber then took out a black pistol and demanded cash from the clerk working at the time. He got the cash and the cash drawer, police say.
The thief then walked out of the store, heading north through the parking lot toward Main Street in Cressona.
If anyone has information on this incident, they’re asked to call State Police at Schuylkill Haven at 570-754-4600.
