WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Police in Waynesboro and Washington Township are on the lookout for a thin, white woman of average height with broken front teeth who they believed robbed a convenience store and a downtown motel and attempted to rob another convenience store late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

According to Washington Township police, the woman entered the Grant Street Express at 409 N. Grant St. Ext. at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

She approached the clerk and demanded money, police said. The clerk gave her an undisclosed amount of cash and she left the store.


A man who answered the telephone at the convenience store declined to comment Wednesday afternoon.

At around 12:07 a.m. Wednesday, a woman fitting the same description went into the Blue Ridge Food Mart at 15010 Buchanan Trail East and demanded money from the clerk, police said.

The clerk physically shoved the woman outside the store and called police.

The woman left in an older model full-size gray sedan.

The third incident occurred at 1:49 a.m. at the Best Western of Waynesboro at 239 W. Main St.

Waynesboro police said the Best Western was held up by a white female, who fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Police said the woman's description matched that of the woman being sought in the Washington Township incidents.

Police did not say whether a weapon was used in any of the incidents.

Anyone with information may call borough police at 717-762-2132 or township police at 717-762-1447. Callers may remain anonymous.
