Hargrove charged with robberies

Police in the Poconos say a man arrested in connection with a series of armed robberies has now officially been charged. 

Tysheed Hargrove, 18,  was formally charged Thursday for two robberies.

One was at a Wawa on Route 940 in Kidder Township, Carbon County.

The other was a holdup at Fegley's Mini Mart in Tamaqua in Schuylkill County.

Hargrove and another man, Jose Nunez, were arrested the day of the Fegley's robbery after a high-speed chase.

The two robberies were part of a series of holdups in Schuylkill and Carbon Counties that started a few weeks ago.
