We’re on the right path, on the right path. They had lost everything so I’m sure that this will be a great help for them.”

Donations can be made to the Graham family at any Citizens Bank via the Graham Family Fire Fund.

Police: Attempted Armed Robbery, Fake or Not?

PECKVILLE — Blakely Police are investigating an attempted robbery in Lackawanna County.

It happened around 6:45 a.m. at the PNC Bank on Main Street on Saturday.

Police say a man in a van pulled up to the ATM to deposit money when another man in a red car pulled up behind him, opened the door and demanded cash.

After the victim claimed he did not have any money, he drove off and was followed by the man for about a block.

The victim told police the man had a gun but the actor claims he did not but does know the victim from work and was faking the entire incident.

But the cops are not sure who is telling the truth.

Police say charges will be filed but not until surveillance video is viewed to see who is telling the truth.
