Police had no trouble tracking down a suspect in the robbery of three women at a Bucks County convenience store. They had taken the man's picture a short time earlier as he socialized with them at a bar.

Police say Andre Smith struck up a conversation with the women at the Bensalem Township taproom early Sunday morning.

Public Safety Director Fred Harran says the women snapped pictures of themselves with Smith, but he later was ejected from the bar for allegedly harassing customers.

Then, police say, when the women stopped by a convenience store, Smith robbed them of their pocketbooks.

The women showed police the pictures from the bar, and officers arrested Smith at his apartment. He is being held on $50,000 bail, charged with robbery and theft.
