'Desperate' man robs Dairy Queen in South Union
A man handed a Dairy Queen employee a note indicating he was “desperate” when he robbed the store on Friday, police said.
State police at Uniontown said the man entered the ice cream shop on West Main Street at 6:13 p.m., showed an employee a handwritten note that said “Give me all the money. I'm desperate,” and indicated he had a gun.
The employee gave the man an unknown amount of money from the cash register and the man fled in a white, 2009 Chevrolet Impala that had been reported stolen earlier in the day.
The robber is a white male, approximately 30 years old with brown hair and some facial hair. He was wearing a black ball cap, long sleeved blue T-shirt, blue denim shorts, white socks, black sneakers and black sunglasses. The car has a Pennsylvania registration — GSD 9849.

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.
