— Po­lice are search­ing for the man who com­mit­ted an armed rob­bery at the Dol­lar Gen­eral on Conowingo Road.

On Fri­day morn­ing, a man bran­dish­ing a hand­gun asked for money and then stole an undis­closed amount from the busi­ness, said Cpl. Need­ham with the Mary­land State Po­lice North East Bar­rack. The same Dol­lar Gen­eral was also robbed in Fe­bru­ary.

No one was in­jured dur­ing the Fri­day in­ci­dent, Need­ham added.

The sus­pect is a male between 25 and 30 years old with a thin build, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The sus­pect was wear­ing a blue hooded sweat­shirt, black hat and blue jeans, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Need­ham said there could be a con­nec­tion between the sus­pect in this in­ci­dent and the sus­pect who robbed the High’s Dairy Store on Blue Ball and Route 273 last week. In that rob­bery, po­lice re­ported a man of sim­i­lar de­scrip­tion ap­proached the counter, dis­played “a snub-nosed re­volver” and de­manded money.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion that might help de­tec­tives iden­tify the armed rob­bery sus­pect is asked to call the North East bar­rack at 410-996-7800.
