A 22 year old Maryland man has been arrested for robbing a jewelry store at the Arnot Mall last Thursday.
State Police say William Howard wore a medical mask to Kay Jewelers pretending he was sick by coughing. Howard apparently asked to see an expensive set of earrings and a necklace and snatched them.
Howard was arrested by Wellsboro, Pennsylvania Police as a fugitive. Investigators say Howard was staying with a friend at Mansfield University. He is awaiting extradition back to New York.
