PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh robbery detectives have released surveillance photos of an armed robbery last month at a neighborhood bar.

It happened at the Bier Haus Tavern on Spring Garden Avenue.

Owner Matt Evans told KDKA-TV the robber walked in, took money from the register and a customer, but on his way out, dropped his mask, gun and some of the money.

He scooped up the money and the gun before leaving.

KDKA’s Ralph Iannotti reports:

This happened at 6:30 p.m. on January 14. The man was described as a black male with a medium to light complexion, believed to be in his late teens.

Evans says the bartender who worked that night quit after the incident because she was frightened.

The owner put a security camera system in his business after a previous holdup.

“He wasn’t every organized, not that I would have expected he would be, but he dropped the money, dropped the gun, dropped his mask off of his face on a couple occasions, which is even scarier – quite frankly – because if he’s that much of a klutz he could have accidentally shot somebody,” said Matt Evans, the owner of the Bierhaus Tavern.

No one was hurt during the incident.
