Jevon Michael Avis, 31, formerly of Berwyn, was arrested Tuesday night in Carlisle, Cumberland County.
He is being charged with theft and related charges in connection with a string of robberies, including several purse snatchings and the strong arm robbery of Girl Scout Troop 4305 in Chester County.
It was approximately 5:00 p.m. on Sunday January 20th when police responded to the Pathmark supermarket at 450 W. Swedesford Road in the Berwyn section of Tredyffrin Township.
Investigators say a man approached a group of Girl Scouts from Troop 4305, who had a table set up for cookie sales.
The man reached into a donation container and took money being collected for United States Military Service People.
The man then forcibly reached into a cash box containing money from cookie sales, stealing approximately $20. Police say the quick-thinking Girl Scouts closed the box, preventing the man from getting more money.
The suspect then fled to the back of the building where he got into a blue vehicle and drove off.
Police say surveillance video helped lead them to Avis. ?
