Dormont police are asking drivers to remember that parking is not allowed on Route 19 during rush hour.
Dormont police are again warning drivers not to park on West Liberty Avenue during rush hour, after seeing an increase in the number of citations issued for the offense in the past few weeks. "It seems to be happening more often again, and when people do that it creates a major traffic problem," said Dormont police Sgt. James Burke. Burke said the police have had a number of vehicles towed from West Liberty because they were parked on the street during rush hour. Burke said the quickest way to report illegally parked cars is to call 911 and tell the responder it is not an emergency. The responder will then contact a member of the police department to address the issue, he said.

Police say a robbery Monday morning at Dunkin Donuts in Dormont is similar to another robbery that occurred in the plaza in February.
Dormont police are investigating a Monday-morning robbery that bears striking similarities to a robbery that occurred in the same plaza earlier this year. Dunkin' Donuts in Dormont Village Plaza on West Liberty Avenue was robbed at gunpoint just before 7 a.m. Monday, with employees and patrons inside the store. According to Dormont police Officer Tom Maloney, a man came into the store pointing a gun and demanded money. The man was given $538 in cash from two registers, and then he fled in the direction of Mississippi Avenue.
