Pottsville police are hunting for an armed robber who got cash Tuesday morning from the Ambrose Hearing Center in the borough.

The suspect is described as a white male in his twenties, who was wearing a light gray hoodie sweatshirt.

Brandishing what appeared to be a dark-colored handgun, he forced the business owner to turn over a small amount of cash.


The robber was last seen running, after robbing the business at 434 E. Norwegian St. He ran east on Norwegian Street, then north on Jackson Street.

Pottsville police, assisted by Pennsylvania State Police, set up a perimeter of the search area but were unable to apprehend the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pottsville police at 570-622-1234.

Information provided will remain confidential at the callers' request.
