Pennsylvania C-store's New Security System Deters Potential Robber

04/26/2011

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- A new security system at the APlus mini-market in the city's west end may have prevented a late-night robbery attempt, officials told WJAC-TV.

The newly renovated convenience store recently reopened, and one of its new features is that the doors automatically lock after a certain time of night. Customers can only enter by being buzzed in by an employee, according to the report.

Store workers said the new security feature paid off Sunday night, when a masked man came to the door, but was turned away. City police are searching for the man in question.
