Leechburg police say this man is Travis Haun of Leechburg.

Leechburg police are searching for a borough man who is suspected of robbing the Sunoco store on Market Street on Tuesday night.

Police are looking for Travis M. Haun, 36.

Leechburg Officer in Charge Jason Schaeffer alleges Haun went into the store at 265 Market St. about 11 p.m.

“When the clerk opened the cash register, Haun jumped up on the counter, pushed the clerk out of the way and jumped down. He reached into the cash register and left,” Schaeffer told the Tribune-Review.

The robber grabbed $71 and was last seen running along Market Street.

The surveillance photo and description have been circulated with area police.

When arrested, Haun will be charged with robbery, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, theft and receiving stolen property, Schaeffer said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Leechburg police at 724-842-8531.

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.
