WILKES-BARRE — Police have arrested a man they say was connected to an armed robbery last year in Wilkes-Barre.

Investigators say John Gwaltney of Avoca who was on the loose after a botched robbery last December is now in custody and was arraigned Wednesday on robbery charges.

Police say it all has to do with an attempted robbery and shooting at a home on South Grant Street in December of 2012.

Two other men who police say were involved also face charges.
