HERMITAGE, Pa. (AP)-- Police say two Ohio men who robbed a Mercer County jewelry store were captured after they fled to a restaurant bathroom and a trash container.
Hermitage police say the men were arrested Monday after the armed robbery of a jeweler at the Shenango Valley Mall.
Investigators say 40-year-old Terrance Jackson was arrested in an Applebee's men's room and 23-year-old Anthony Jacobs was found hiding in a large metal trash container behind another restaurant.
Both Columbus, Ohio, men are being held on $500,000 bail at the Mercer County Prison on robbery and related charges. Online court records don't list attorneys for them.
