IROQUOIS – An Iroquois convenience store has been robbed again – the second time in less than a month.

SD&G O.P.P. Const. Tylor Copeland told Newswatch, a suspect went into the Circle K in the Iroquois Plaza and produced some sort of weapon just after midnight this morning (Dec. 12) and demanded cash and tobacco products.

The lone suspect got away with both.

He is described as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and 180 pounds with a slim build and very bright, blue eyes. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a white and black bandana, black pants and dark shoes.

There were no injuries.

O.P.P. officers were stopping vehicles nearby early this morning as they searched for the perpetrator.

On Nov. 17, the same store was held up by two suspects where the same sort of items – cash and tobacco – were stolen after a weapon was shown.

Police have not said whether the two cases are connected or related.
