Pennsylvania State Police are hoping to catch a bandit with a green thumb red-handed.

Troopers from the Greensburg barracks say the man robbed the Amenity Farm and Greenhouse in Mount Pleasant Township on Tuesday about 6 p.m. They say he flashed a gun and demanded money before also taking some plants.

Police say the man ran away and they hadn't identified, charged or arrested the suspect by Wednesday.

The greenhouse is located about 35 miles east of Pittsburgh.
