Moon police are searching for a man who robbed a scrap yard at gunpoint Monday morning.

A man wearing a black knit mask and holding a large hand gun with a long, square barrel walked into H. Snyder Steel on Montour Road at about 11:30 a.m., police Chief Leo McCarthy said in a news release. The man ordered two employees into a back room and stole money and other items, McCarthy said.

The employees described the man as a heavy-set white male wearing gray sweatpants and a black sweatshirt with the hood up, and said they had noticed a man fitting that description around the business before the robbery, McCarthy said. He may have been watching the business “waiting for his opportunity to strike,” McCarthy said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 412-262-5000.
