peckville att rob

PECKVILLE — It turns out an attempted robbery over the weekend in Lackawanna County was all a joke.

Police say a man was withdrawing money from an ATM on Main Avenue in Peckville Saturday when his co-worker yelled, saying he was going to take the cash.

The guy ran and the co-worker tried to catch up with him in his car to tell him it was a joke.

The victim thought a robber was chasing him and called police.

Investigators say because of the seriousness of the prank, the prankster will be cited with disorderly conduct in Lackawanna County.
