April 28, 2003

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Police in Waynesboro said Friday they are still looking for a man who entered two private clubs early Thursday morning armed with a screwdriver and what was described as a long barrel gun and demanded money from employees.

There were no injuries and the would-be robber walked away empty-handed from both clubs, police said.

The first incident occurred at the American Legion Post at 63 East Main St., police said. Two employees were inside shortly after 4 a.m. when they were approached by a man, described as a white male, about 200 pounds and 6-feet tall, wearing a gray coat with the hood up and a brown ski mask.

The man demanded money from the employees and was told the only cash was some coins in the cash register. The man asked where the safe was and was taken to it by an employee.

Both employees left the building and ran to the police department next door.
