Robbery, Kidnapping at Crosby's

An alleged robbery and kidnapping at the South Avenue Crosby’s early Tuesday morning has landed a Bradford couple in jail.

34-year-old Alice Hannon of Bolivar Drive dropped off her husband, 39-year-old Robert John Hannon Sr. at the store at just after midnight when the clerk was locking up for the night. According to papers filed in District Judge Bill Todd's office, Hannon, who was wearing a camouflage mask, forced the clerk back into the store, where he took money from the safe.

Hannon then forced the clerk into the passenger seat of her own vehicle, drove her to the Interstate Parkway entrance of Allegany State Park, took her cell phone and left her there.

The victims started walking down Interstate until she was able to flag down a passerby and get a ride to the Bradford police station.

Robert Hannon, who used to work for Crosby's was identified through surveillance video. When police talked to his wife she told them he got home at about 2:30 a.m. and was carrying a Crosby's bag that had about $3,000 in it. She said he put the money in a dresser drawer in their bedroom. She said he also told her he dropped the clerk's car off on Summer Street.

Hannon turned himself in to Bradford Township Police, and said he and his wife were having money problems and he was trying to solve and that he had convinced her he could "get away with it," court papers say. He also told police he did not have a weapon.

The Hannons are jailed on $50,000 bail each.
