Police in Lancaster said a robbery at the Park City Center shopping mall on Sunday was an inside job.

Police said 23-year-old Lamar Reed and 21-year-old Elizabeth Castillo, both of West James Street in Lancaster, have been charged with the crime.

Police said both Reed and Castillo worked at the restaurant. They said Reed left at closing time, but later returned through a service area wearing a mask and showing a handgun.

Investigators said Reed gave Castillo a threatening note demanding cash. Police said Castillo, who was the on-duty manager, helped Reed by showing the note to other employees and gathering them in one area of the restaurant.

Police said Castillo then removed cash from several areas of the restaurant.

The robbery led to a lockdown at the mall Sunday night.
