EYNON -- Authorities in Lackawanna County said the P&G Mehoopany Federal Credit Union along Business Route 6 in Eynon was held up Tuesday morning.

According to Archbald police, a woman with a stun gun walked into the credit union around 10:30 a.m. and demanded money.  Authorities say she got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Archbald police believe the woman who held up the credit union may have been a pro. It's her signature touches that are the cops' best clues.

Investigators released surveillance video from the credit union of the robbery. They also released security camera images from businesses nearby of someone they are calling a person of interest.

Archbald police believe the woman who held up the credit union may have been a pro. It's her signature touches that are the cops' best clues.

Tellers say the woman was small, just over five feet tall. She was covered head to toe and wore a ski mask over her face. She threatened the tellers with a stun gun that was activated, as they filled a bag with cash.

Then, she took off in a Blue Hyundai Vera Cruz. The SUV's license plate was covered with plastic wrap.

Police think the robber tried to hide more than her face. They think she may have stuffed her sweat pants and sweatshirt to hide her body type.

"She does have some sweat pants on. She has a lot of baggy clothing on," said Archbald Police Chief Tim Trently. "We believe it may have been stuffed with some objects, even paper bags or whatever, full face mask that was on, and basically made an entrance pretty quick and out pretty easily."

Archbald police told us that they have been asked by the FBI to investigate the possible connection between this robbery and another in Glenburn Township in Lackawanna County last October.

Officers say that robbery was also committed by a woman with a stun gun.
