HOPWOOD, Pa. —
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a bank robbery in Hopwood that they said may be connected to a robbery at a nearby pharmacy last week.
According to Trooper Stefanie Plume, a man walked into the PNC Bank on National Pike about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and handed a teller a note that indicated he had a weapon.
Plume said the teller gave the man money, which he placed inside his coat pocket, and the man left the bank.
The man turned right onto Old Furnace Road and began running, Plume said.
Several police units responded to the scene and searched the area for the man, but they were unable to locate him.
The suspect is described as a white man, between 5 feet 6 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall. He is between 50 and 60 years old, and has gray hair.
Plume said at the time of the robbery he was wearing wire rimmed glasses, a black zip-up coat, a black baseball hat, blue jeans and brown boots.
“Although it cannot be confirmed, it is believed that this actor may be the same individual that robbed the Hopwood Pharmacy less than one week ago,” Plume said in an emailed statement.
Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact police. Officials said any information that leads to an arrest could result in a reward of up to $1,000.
