Suspect in Plum S&T Bank robbery may be responsible for other hold ups
Robberies at three Plum businesses within the past month may be connected.
Police said a clerk at the S&T Bank in the Holiday Park Shopping Center was passed a note on Dec. 14 around 5:50 p.m. stating that the man passing the note was robbing the bank and demanding the clerk give him money.
The suspect was described as a young black male between the ages of 19 and 24 standing between 5 foot 8 inches and 5 foot 10 inches tall. He had a thin build, wore a grey hoodie and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police Chief Jeff Armstrong said similar descriptions of a suspect and note were given in connection with robberies at the Subway in Presque Isle Plaza on Nov. 16 and Joanne’s Hallmark Shop in the Holiday Park Shopping Center on Nov. 21.
The suspect also fled on foot in both of those incidents.
“Based on the description of the actor, as far as their build, physical description, no report of vehicle afterward, we believe there’s a very good chance that this one actor is involved in all three robberies,” Armstrong said.
No injuries or description of a get-away vehicle were reported in any of the robberies.
Anyone with information about the incidents should contact Plum police at 412-793-7400.
