Police: South Union Dairy Queen robber struck twice
The same man robbed two Uniontown-area businesses Friday and Saturday, state police said.
The unidentified man entered the Dairy Queen on West Main Street in South Union around 6:15 p.m. Friday, handed an employee a note that said, “Give me all the money. I'm desperate,” and said he had a gun, police said. The employee gave the man money from the cash register, and then he fled in a white 2009 Chevy Impala, with a PA license plate of GSD9849, which had been reported stolen earlier Friday from Uniontown, police said.
The unidentified man walked into the Exxon gas station on Route 51 in North Union around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. He demanded money, said he had a gun, and an employee gave him $80. The man left in a white Chevy Impala.
Police described the man as white, middle aged, with brown hair and some facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, blue Ecko Unlimited long sleeve T-shirt, blue denim shorts, white socks, black sneakers and black sunglasses.
Anyone with information is asked to call state police in Uniontown at 724-439-7111.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
