State police in Jonestown have charged four Lebanon County residents for their involvement in a pair of armed restaurant robberies earlier this month.
Police said 20-year-old Tyler Foster, of Lebanon, was the masked robber who on February 11 pointed a gun at employees of Super Panda Buffet, at 133 W. Lincoln Avenue in Myerstown, and Francisco's Pizza, at 139 E. Main Street in Fredericksburg.
Foster fled the restaurants with cash from the registers and got into a truck driven by 18-year-old Richard Clark III, of Myerstown, police said.
Steven Gettle Jr., 19, and Miranda Cole, 18, both of Lebanon, were in the truck and were aware the robberies were going to take place, police said.
Police said each of the four benefited from the proceeds of the robberies.
Each was charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft, simple assault, and reckless endangerment. Foster and Clark were additionally charged with carrying a firearm without a license, police said.
Bail was set at $100,000 each.
