Christmas Morning Crimes

Police in Luzerne County are investigating two Christmas morning crimes, and they think the same man could be responsible for both.

The first was in Plains Township.  Police say a man with some sort of covering over his face tried to rob Dunkin Donuts along Route 315.  It happened just before 4:00 a.m.

Then, ten minutes later, a man tried to rob Turkey Hill on North Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilkes-Barre.

In both cases, the would be bandit left empty handed.  Clerks at both stores provided police with similar descriptions.

Police say the man might have been driving a small black car.

No one was hurt in those attempted Christmas morning robberies.
