The North Greenbush Police in Wilkes-Barre, PA has released updates on the viral ‘Grandpa Bandit’ Saturday on Facebook. The Wilkes-Barre Township Police Department say it’s looking into an armed robbery case at a Dollar General from Wednesday in the town.
Authorities narrate that at about 9:30 p.m. on June 7, an unknown middle-aged white male with gray hair, a mustache and wearing a flannel shirt entered the Dollar General store, and later pulled a yellow Tazer and black handgun and demanded money. The description fits the same one given by the North Greenbush police on Friday when they announced that they were searching for the ‘Grandpa Bandit’ who police say has robbed dollar store from New York all the way to Idaho.
The police say the robber got away with an undetermined amount of money. They also point to a small black sedan leaving the scene after the robbery. North Greenbush Police had reported earlier the robber to be driving a silver or gray Dodge Charger.
The North Greenbush Police also share with CBS6 that they are closely working with the FBI to find the robber and are setting up a phone number for people to call to give in their tips and other relevant information on his location.
For now, the authorities are asking anyone with information to call them at (518) 283-5323.
