Meshoppen Borough Police are looking for a white male between 18 and 22 years old who robbed the PenMart on Route 6 on Russell Hill, Washington Township.

According to the police report, at 9:50 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29, the man, wearing a gray hoodie, black ski mask, black trousers and white sneakers, entered the convenience store and looked behind the counter. He left, then re-entered the store, jumped over the counter and grabbed the box. He jumped back over the counter and ran out the door.

A female employee of the PenMart gave chase into a nearby field. The man turned and ran into a church parking lot. A female, driving a tan Buick, drove into the lot at a high rate of speed, and the man jumped in. The two sped off in the Buick with an undetermined amount of money.

A video of this incident may be available at a later time.

A partial registration was obtained and given as GHE837.
