Armed Robbery Arrest

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Police say they've caught the man responsible for multiple armed robberies across the Lehigh Valley.

Officials say 41-year-old Todd Singley of Milford, New Jersey has been arrested and charged with three counts of armed robbery.

According to police, Singley robbed the Starbucks on Lehigh Street in Allentown near the South Mall sometime around 6 Saturday evening.

Then, 45 minutes later, he proceeded to the Sunoco mini-mart in the 2100-block of Hamilton Street in Allentown, where he robbed the store of an unknown amount of money, police said.

Detectives near the scene then found Singley fleeing the scene where they then apprehended him. 

Officials believe he is also responsible for Friday night's armed robbery of the IHOP on Lehigh Street in Allentown.
