Suspect Sought in Smoke Shop Armed Robbery

Easton Police are looking for a man that allegedly committed armed robbery this morning at around 8:30 a.m. at Smokes 2 Go, in the same shopping center as Wawa, on Larry Holmes Drive.

The suspect, a black male in his 30s, is about 5-foot-8-inches tall with dark facial hair. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt underneath a jacket, with dark pants with a white stripe, and sneakers, report police.
