WILKES-BARRE -- A thief is on the run after a hold up in Wilkes-Barre.

Police say a man waved a knife at the clerk at Turkey Hill Minit Mart on Hazle Street just after 4 a.m. on Tuesday.

That robber got some money and cigarettes before running off here in Wilkes-Barre.

    I wonder what the suspect looked like….. no seriously, I do. It would really help if such facts were actually reported.

    At what point does Turkey Hill stop putting the lives of their employees in danger and close the store by midnight? Once a week an article appears like this one- someone is going to end up getting murdered.

    Smokes and a few bucks. What dumb asses. It’s about time the attendants start carrying . Wilkes Barre what a sh*t hole of a town. Keep bringing in the new Yorkers and jersians.

    honestly I don’t know if it’s the same turkey hill or not but there are a lot of robberies in wilkesbarre…these clerks need to learn to safe drop all their 10’s and higher.. it’s an obvious security measure that would save the company money and maybe deter burglars if they know there’s only 5 and ones in the drawer….you’d think they’d learn! I feel like every week I’m reading “Turkey Hill in WIlkesbarre Robbed” smh

      Even $5’s and $1’s with smokes turns out to be enough- hell, the cigarette’s alone could add up to hundreds of dollars. 99% chance their after money for drugs; cigarette’s can be traded for drugs as well. They have to close the store by midnight- these robberies won’t stop.

      Employees r required to safe srop their $20’s. Its impossible to drop 10’s when they’re expected to cash lottery winnings and people paying with $100 bills.
