State police in Indiana are looking for the man who held up a White Township convenience store on Friday night.

According to police, the robbery occurred shortly before 10 p.m., when a white man in his 20s walked into the EZ Mart along Ben Franklin Road South. Police said the robber was carrying a silver handgun and demanded money. He then left with an undetermined amount of cash and three packs of cigarettes. 

Police said the man is 5-foot-7, weighs about 180 pounds, and was wearing a light-green sweatshirt and a black bandana, which he had over his face. 

This is the second time the store has been robbed in recent months.

On Dec. 23, two men entered the store shortly before 10 p.m., and ordered a clerk to open the cash register, put her hands in the air and then to lie down on floor.

One of the two then walked behind the counter and took about $250 in cash and several packs of Marlboro cigarettes.

Anyone with any information has been asked to call police at (724) 357-1960.
