A wallet and more than $200 in cash was were stolen during two back-to-back armed robberies in Phillipsburg over the weekend, authorities said.

Two men, at least one in a ski mask, approached the first victim near Fischer Avenue and Anderson Avenue, showed a gun and demanded his wallet around 7 p.m. Sunday, LehighValleyLive reports citing Warren County Prosecutor Jim Pfeiffer.

The men took the victim’s wallet and ran in different directions, Pfeiffer said in the report.

The second robbery occurred hours later at the Sunoco on Memorial Parkway. A tall, thin man demanded money from the service station attendant and fled with $216, police said.

A K9 search tracked the scent until about a block away, where authorities believe the robber entered a vehicle.

No injuries were reported, authorities said.
