WIND GAP, Pa. - The second man charged in connection with the robbery of a Wind Gap cell phone store last month was arrested Friday night.
Slate Belt Regional police filed charges Friday afternoon against Vaughn Darrius Felix in connection with the Feb. 9 robbery of the Verizon Wireless Store at 1001 S. Broadway.
The 26-year-old is charged with robbery, kidnapping, theft, false imprisonment, simple assault, weapons possession, conspiracy and possession of an instrument of a crime.
Felix was arrested and arraigned in Northampton County later Friday night.
Felix was previously wanted for the armed robbery of an Easton jewelry store in December.
Gregory Lewis, Jr. is facing similar charges for his role in both of those robberies.
He faces felony counts of robbery, kidnapping and theft and misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment and simple assault. Authorities have also filed ungraded charges of conspiracy, weapons possession and possession of an instrument of a crime.
Lewis was arraigned Friday afternoon. Bail was set at $100,000.
Authorities reported in February that two masked men, one of them armed, entered the Verizon store and tied an employee's hands behind his back. They reportedly stole as many as 45 phones and the night deposit from the previous night before running out the back door.
