A suspect in the Sept. 23 robbery of Waffle House in Williamsport was arrested Wednesday by the Martinsburg Police Department, Washington County Sheriff's Department Investigator Greg Alton said.
Tonya Marie Powell, 23, of 189 Destiny Drive in Martinsburg, W.Va., is charged through a Sheriff's Department arrest warrant with armed robbery, robbery, first-degree and second-degree assault, misdemeanor theft, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony/violent crime and handgun on person, Alton said.
Powell was being held Wednesday afternoon on a $100,000 cash bond as a fugitive from justice at Eastern Regional Jail in Martinsburg.
A Martinsburg Police Department officer saw Powell walking and arrested her on a fugitive warrant, according to a written release.
Deputies allege Powell entered the restaurant shortly after 1 p.m. and demanded money from an employee. She allegedly left with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into a waiting pickup truck driven by a man, Alton said.
