Monroeville police are investigating an armed robbery at a Pennsylvania Wine and Spirits store this morning that may be connected to four other local liquor store heists.
No one was hurt when a man came into the store at 3845 Northern Pike around 9:30 a.m. with a handgun and demanded cash, Monroeville police Sgt. Rob McConnell said.
Three employees were working at the time, but no customers were inside the store. Late this morning, police were trying to determine how much money the man took.
The sergeant said the robbery may be related to four other liquor store robberies, including one in Forest Hills and another in Homestead. All of the incidents occurred shortly after the stores opened, he said.
Monroeville police are using surveillance video as part of the investigation and are looking for a thin, black man about 5 feet, 7 inches tall.
