Police: Robbery at Sears in Stroud Mall

STROUD TWP., Pa. - Police have identified the suspect in a robbery that occurred Sunday at the Stroud Mall. 

Officials say 26-year-old Andrew Joseph Rumolo, of Stroudsburg, entered Sears department store in Stroud Township and asked for an employee's assistance in looking for a tool. Soon after he told the employee he had a bomb and would detonate it if he wasn't given all the money.

The employee emptied two cash registers and handed over the money to Rumolo, who threatened the employee again before leaving. 

An investigation led police to Rumolo, who was taken into custody Monday. He is facing charges of robbery and several additional misdemeanor charges. 

Rumolo was unable to post $100,000 bail and is committed to Monroe County Correctional Facility.
