Antique Shop Robbies in New York and Pennsylvania are Similar

Cortland County Sheriff sketch

Cortland County Sheriff’s investigators say they have discovered similarities between the armed robbery of an antique store in Marathon earlier this month and a recent armed robbery of an antique store in the Union County, Pennsylvania area, south of Williamsport

Surveillance photos from the Pennsylvania holdup show a clean-shave white man wearing a baseball hat, green jacket, white shirt and jeans as well as a light-colored, extended cab pickup truck in the parking lot.

Earlier this month, Cortland Sheriff’s investigators said a man entered River Bend Antiques on Route 11 in the Village of Marathon shortly at 12:06 p.m. November 8th, talked with an employee for a few minutes, then displayed a handgun and demanded jewelry from a display case.

The man fled in what appeared to be a full-sized, newer extended cab, short-box pickup truck.  The light gray truck left the parking lot of the business and traveled south on Route 11 (Cortland Street).

Officials say it’s believed the suspect got away with between $4,000 and $7,000 worth of jewelry.

In the Marathon robbery, the suspect was also described as white, middle aged with a slender build.  He stood about six feet tall, had dark brown hair, short scruffy chin hair and was wearing a baseball hat.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cortland County Sheriff’s Department Criminal Investigation Division at (607) 753-3311 or (607) 758-6151.
