Armed Robbery at Linden Street Gas Station Sunday
Bethlehem police report an armed robbery at a gas station on Linden Street Sunday afternoon.
He parked his late model Volvo sedan on Jennings Street behind the business. Upon entering the store he was concealing his face by holding a purple in color piece of cloth over it. He held a pistol with his right hand and demanded money from the clerk as he pointed the pistol at him.

After putting the money in his right pocket, he returned to his car and left the area heading south on Jennings Street.
