Pittsburgh police are searching for a butterfingered convenience store robber who got away with seven packs of cigarettes but dropped all but $1 of the money he stole. Police say the man robbed the Uni-Mart in the city's Troy Hill section at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say the man wore a ski mask and ball cap and pointed a handgun at a clerk who gave him $66.

A customer was in the store at the time, but nobody was hurt in the heist.

Detectives were reviewing surveillance video Monday but did not any immediate arrests in the robbery.
