MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) – Police in Montgomery Township are looking for some witnesses as they continue to investigate an armed robbery over the weekend at a cash-for-gold kiosk in the Montgomery Mall.
Police say the Gold Rush employee told them the suspect, identified as a Hispanic male in his early-to-mid 20s, showed up at the kiosk around 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon asking for a quote for some jewelry.
Detective Ed Davies says the man left, but came back shortly before closing around six wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and asked if she had the money.
“He showed what appeared to be a black-colored handgun in his waistband, so the employee at that time said it was the same male wearing different clothing and she gave him the money that was contained at the kiosk,” Davies explained.
Davies would not disclose the amount. He says the man produced an out-of-state driver’s license when he inquired about selling jewelry.
With gold selling at all-time highs, Davies says the concern is he could strike again at other area stores.
