Bridgeville police getting warrant for suspect in Rite Aid robbery
Bridgeville police say they have positively identified a man who robbed and threatened to shoot a clerk at the Rite Aid on Route 50 just before 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
“I want to personally thank all who responded to this post,” Bridgeville police Chief Chad King wrote on the department's Facebook page Wednesday afternoon. “The actor has been positively identified and we will be obtaining an arrest warrant within the next few hours.”
The suspect's identity was not immediately released to the public.
In a Facebook post Wednesday morning, King said the suspect demanded money and threatened to shoot. The Facebook post was shared more than 1,300 times in a few hours. Police think the suspect is the same man who robbed the Dollar Tree in the Glenn Scott Plaza on Washington Avenue in Scott Township around 9:20 a.m. June 19.
The suspect was wearing a Pittsburgh Penguins hoodie in both incidents. It was not immediately known how much money was taken in either incident.
Police say the suspect was driving a Saturn Vue.
Bridgeville police are asking people with information to call their dispatch office at 412-279-6911 or to send a private message to the department via their Facebook page.
