Surveillance Video Helps Nab Black Friday Burglar
MOOSIC — Police in Lackawanna County credit a Newswatch 16 viewer with helping them catch a suspected thief.
Moosic Police said Robert Ellis, 34, of Scranton, is one of two men who broke into a mini-mart on Birney Avenue on Black Friday.
A surveillance picture of the heist aired on Newswatch 16 and that’s when police received a tip saying Ellis was the culprit.
On top of the burglary charge, authorities said they found heroin and cocaine in the man’s vehicle when they arrested him during a traffic stop late Wednesday night.
