CLEARFIELD — Police are still looking for the perpetrator in a cigarette store robbery and are asking the public’s help in identifying him.
Smokey’s Discount Cigarette Store, 1580 S. State Street, was robbed by a man carrying a large, unknown caliber revolver about 3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, according to Clearfield Police Lt. Adam Malan.
