WEST HAZLETON — Police are searching for an armed robber after a hold up at a Luzerne County convenience store.

According to investigators, the clerk asked a hooded person to remove their hood and at that point the robber showed a knife.

Authorities said the person got away with an amount of money, but the robber was caught on a surveillance camera.

Police believe it may have been a woman wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt.  No one was injured.
