Armed Robbery at a Dollar Store

PLAINS TOWNSHIP -- Police are looking for an armed robber in Luzerne County.

Investigators said a man walked into JoAnn's Dollar Saver on North River Street in Plains Township just before 8 p.m. Saturday, showed a knife, then made off with some money.

There was a kid's birthday party next door at the time.

No one was hurt.

    Why is the child’s birthday party of significance to the story? Don’t know your name kid but, Happy Birthday!

    WNEP: The most bizarre reporting ever. “There was an old lady in the store too, there were two dogs and a cat nearby as well….” Just very random details with no lead-in, and short on story details that matter. Hey, at least there were no grammatical errors! I think that’s a first for a story on here! Keep the stories short and vague and you’ll have the odds with you.

    In addition to cash the thief also made off with a spatula, 4 pk. of ice cube trays and an expired box of Little Debbie cupcakes.
