State Police Still Looking for Knife-Wielding Robber
Written by Kelly Chandler, Staff Writer

        State police, Reading barracks, said they have yet to identify the subject who robbed the Turkey Hill gas station and convenience store, 3664 Seisholtzville Road, Hereford, during the early morning hours last Thursday.

         As reported on www.upvnews.com Thursday morning, a woman wearing a wool winter hat pulled down over her face, with eye and mouth holes cut out, entered the store at 1:48 a.m. and jumped over the front counter. State police said she immediately tried to get into the store’s safe.
        The store clerk, who was making coffee in the rear of the store, reportedly came to the front where she was confronted by the woman, who had a pocket knife in her right hand. The woman demanded the clerk open the safe and the cash registers. 
        Police said, after telling the woman she didn’t have the safe’s combination, the clerk opened the registers. The woman proceeded to steal an undetermined amount of money before fleeing through the front doors. Police reported the robber was last seen running west through the parking lot.
        The suspect is described as 5’6” to 5’7” in height with a thin build, blonde hair and blue/green eyes. She was described as being in her late teens or early twenties. She was wearing a brown/green hooded sweatshirt with tan “GAP” lettering on the front. She was wearing gray sweatpants, black gloves and a light blue hat.
        Turkey Hill staff at the Hereford location said they couldn’t comment on the crime.
        Calls to the corporate office for comment were not returned. 
        Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call PSP, Reading barracks, at (610)621-8630.
