Springfield Township gas station robbed

A Springfield Township gas station was robbed yesterday by a man whom authorities believe is the same person who robbed a different gas station just down the road the night before.

A man entered the Sunoco station at 6504 Airport Hwy. just before 7 last night, motioned toward his waist, said he had a gun, and demanded money from the clerk, authorities said.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of money; no weapon was actually seen.

A review of the surveillance tape shows that the robber is likely the same man who took $246 from the Speedway gas station at 6757 Airport Hwy. about 7:20 p.m. Friday, authorities said.
