PARK CITY — Flanagan's Irish Pub & Restaurant was robbed Sunday by a gun-toting bandit, but the man didn't make off with any cool cash.

Instead, police say he lifted an expensive bottle of wine he'd stuffed in a duffel bug. When confronted by an employee, the man brandished a revolver and then fled out the back door of the pub, 438 Main, and onto Swede Alley.

The heist happened just before 11:15 a.m., and although officers and K-9s arrived within three minutes, there was not a trace of the man.

Police are on the lookout for a white man, about 5 feet 8 inches, with a stocky build. He was wearing a dark green Carhartt-style work jacket, black pants and had on a tan ski mask that covered part of his face.
