Mount Airy shop robbed of money, collectible bills

January 04, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An undisclosed amount of currency, including a few collectible dollar bills, were reported stolen from a Mount Airy tobacco shop early yesterday, state police at Westminster reported.

Someone broke the glass on the front door of the Tobacco Shack in the 1000 block of Twin Arch Road between 1 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. yesterday, and targeted a safe or strongbox, according to the police report.

The one or two bills taken are worth more than their $1 face value because they are marked as silver certificates, said Lt. Terry L. Katz, barracks commander. The thief apparently had no interest in tobacco products.

A possible suspect was described to police by employees and witnesses as an unkempt white woman about 30 years old, 5 feet 3 inches tall and of medium build, with long processed blond hair and wearing "rough dress," according to the report.
