Four nearby stores were evacuated and half the Wheatland Shopping Center's parking lot was cleared while police searched. Officials say 37-year-old Ronald Brown was found near a creek behind the center with a bag of stolen cash.
Brown is being held in Lancaster County Prison on $250,000 bail. Investigators say he's also expected to be charged in bank robberies in Lancaster and Manheim townships, also using phony bombs.
