Police are searching for the robber who made off with $200 from a Sunoco convenience store in Mt. Pleasant early Saturday morning after threatening a female clerk with a gun, borough police said.

The suspect, wearing a hood and using clothing to cover his face, came into the Sunoco store at 819 W. Main St., shortly after midnight and pointed the gun at a clerk, demanding the money, said Officer Justin James. He fled in either a white minivan or white sport utility vehicle, James said.

The suspect appeared to be a white male, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, police said.
