On 12/4/16, at approximately 2317 hrs., the police department was dispatched to the 400 block of East Main Street for a robbery that occurred at the Gulf gas station. The employee on scene advised that a male entered the store wearing a brown jacket, with a blue “scarf” over their mouth and face. The male made a motion for the employee to empty the cash register. After the employee gave the male an undetermined amount of cash, the male motioned for the other register to be opened. The employee did so, but there was no cash in that register. The male then left the area on foot. The male was described as being approximately 6 feet tall and weighing around 180 pounds. The male also had on black gloves, a gray hood over their head and blue jeans. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mechanicsburg Police Department at (717) 691-3300.
