MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police believe they have identified a man who was armed with a box cutter when he robbed a Walmart in Cumberland County early this morning.

Silver Spring Township police said they have an arrest warrant for Ronald Charles Wynn, of Shippensburg, who remains at large.

He was last seen in the Harrisburg area, police said.

Wynn, 45, has been charged with robbery, simple assault, and theft for the robbery at the Carlisle Pike store.

He allegedly was holding a box cutter when he approached a clerk and said he needed money from the cash register.

He then took cash from the drawer and left the store at around 4 a.m., police said.

Investigators said a taxi cab picked him up in Harrisburg, drove him to the store, then returned him to Harrisburg after the robbery.

They do not believe the cab driver knew anything about the robbery.

"It did make our investigation a little bit easier because he used a phone to call the cab company, and we were able to start getting some information from that phone number he used to call the cab company," Silver Spring Detective Jared Huff said.

Police said they were able to confirm Wynn was at the store because he withdrew money from an ATM inside the Walmart.

Court documents indicate that Wynn was granted parole last month after serving prison time for an armed robbery in Carlisle in November 2011.

In that case, police said he pulled a machete on a clerk when he robbed the Super 7 store in the 300 block of N. Hanover Street.

He pleaded no contest to one count of robbery in May 2012.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Silver Spring Township police at 717-238-9676.
