EASTON, Pa. -

One of two men wanted in connection with a robbery in Easton late Sunday night is now in custody.

Alden Grange surrendered to police Thursday afternoon. Police continue to search for a second suspect, Kajuan Knox, who should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

The robbery occurred at 11 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of Palmer Street. 

A handgun was displayed during the robbery, according to police, who stated: "This was not a random act and the victim and/or victim's residence was targeted by the suspects."

At 7 a.m. Thursday,  the police department’s special response unit executed a warrant to search Knox's home at 3104 Vermont St.

Police hoped to catch both suspects at that address, but neither was there.

Officers did observe illegal narcotics in plain view inside the residence. Three men and a woman were detained.

Members of the department's vice unit obtained another search warrant to further search the place. They found  two handguns with obliterated serial numbers as well as heroin and marijuana.

Palmer Township police took custody of two individuals at the home, who will be facing further charges.

Nobody was injured during the morning operation.
