Lower Paxton Township Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred last night at the Sun Up, 4617 Locust Lane. It happened around 7pm. A clerk told police two robbers entered the store. One suspect was armed with a black and silver revolver, and threatened the clerk. The suspects took cash and Newport cigarettes before fleeing out the front door toward Dartmouth Street.

The second male is described as 6’3” tall, light skinned, wearing a dark hoodie with a tan vest.
