Well-Dressed Burglar Steals Pennies From Family Dollar

UNIONTOWN (KDKA) — Police in Fayette County are looking for a well-dressed burglar.

The man, wearing a suit, collared shirt and a tie, climbed on top of the counter at the Family Dollar on Gallatin Avenue in Uniontown on Sunday to search the register.

When he realized it was empty, he grabbed some pennies off the counter and took off.

The theft was captured on surveillance video.

The suspect’s snazzy attire has people talking.

“He should have been at the courthouse or somewhere like that instead of Dollar General,” Christopher Soliday said.

Store employees and police aren’t laughing. They need your help to identify the man so-called “penny bandit.”

“He had some courage to do it right here on Gallatin Avenue,” Soliday continued.

“It’s a well-ran road, cops are always on patrol – must have been in desperate times.”

If you recognize the man, Uniontown police would like to hear from you.

    Pennies? In my opinion that is nothing compared to the money and items the manager and asst. managers stole from the Lyle blvd Family Dollar in McKeesport. I honestly don’t think corporate takes great care in watching the video closely and they need to update their computers for pick-ups, refunds and enforce a no kissing ( can’t wait on family and friends) policy. It’s not the outsiders it’s the employees.

    You’ve been posting this “last” link to your “banned” book forever. Most of the things you list are violations of our rights, but “diversity” as such surely is not, it is the nature of the world, learn to live with it! This also has nothing at all to do with the subject of the article!

    Another case of white collar crime….if he gets caught, he’ll probably just get a slap on the wrist.
