WARRINGTON, Pa. (TND) — Police outside Philadelphia say they linked two men to convenience store robberies and more, and both are behind bars.
First, someone held up a 7-Eleven in Warminster on June 21.
According to Warrington Township police, they didn’t recognize the robber but they did identify a customer in the store at the time as Christiano D’Antuono.
Then, on June 30 at 4:18 a.m., they said D’Antuono, wearing a mask, tried to break into a gun shop in nearby Hatboro. That didn’t work out, so they said he quickly committed an armed robbery of his own at a Wawa convenience store in Warrington at 4:41 a.m. instead.
D’Antuono, 19, was arrested in August, and he faces a long list of charges: robbery, burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, possessing instruments of crime, terroristic threats, loitering and prowling at night, recklessly endangering another person, and simple assault.
Then, investigators said they linked Jahmir Green to the 7-Eleven robbery, and that Green had also conspired with D’Antuono to commit the crimes at the gun shop and the Wawa.
They got an arrest warrant for Green that contained even more charges than D’Antuono faces: 30 counts of robbery, burglary, firearms violations, and more.
U.S. Marshals arrested Green, 25, Wednesday afternoon. He’s being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
