JAMESTOWN – City police have made a second arrest in connection to the robbery of the CVS pharmacy that took place on March 26.
According to Jamestown Police Captain Robert Samuelson, 29 year-old Dennis Harmon was picked up by officers after police notified the public and other law enforcement agencies that he was a person of interest in the case. Police named Harmon a person of interest on Friday afternoon. By Saturday night he was in police custody.
Police believe that Harmon, along with 23 year-old Thomas Lawson, was allegedly involved in holding up the CVS in Brooklyn Square early in the morning on March 26. The two are accused of entering the store wearing masks and using a knife during the hold up. The two suspects are accused of allegedly taking an undisclosed amount of cash, along with cigarettes and medication before fleeing from the scene.
Lawson was arrested last week following an investigation by police. Officers believe he was also involved in a similar robbery that took place at the 7-Eleven convenience store on N. Main St, which took place on March 24.
The two are not believed to be connected to a third robbery that occurred at the East Second Street 7-Eleven on April 1. The suspect in incident is still at large, and is described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-2-inch black man with a thin build.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the JPD at 483-7537 or the department’s anonymous tip line 483-TIPS (8477).
