Police: Robber threatens employees with grenade

HILLTOWN TWP., Pa. - A masked bandit threatened employees with a hand grenade during a robbery inside a CVS Pharmacy in Bucks County.

It happened at around 4:50 p.m. Sunday in the CVS at Route 113 and Country Line Road in Hilltown Township, police said.

About 12 customers and three employees were inside when the heavy-set Hispanic man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and mask walked into the store, police said.

The robber showed employees what he said was a grenade, and he stole some medication before running away, officials said.

Authorities scoured the area with two K-9 units for about an hour, but they couldn't find the bandit.

Nobody was hurt.

Anybody with information is asked to call Hilltown Township police at 215-453-6000.
