Ruffsdale man jailed in pair of robberies
A 30-year-old Ruffsdale man is being held in the Fayette County Prison in connection with two robberies Saturday.
Calvin L. Shawley is accused of robbing the CVS Pharmacy on Route 819 in East Huntingdon Township at 9:10 a.m. In addition, he is charged with robbing the Honey Bear/Sunoco convenience store in Connellsville Township that day.
State police at Greensburg reported cash and Fentanyl patches, a narcotic pain medicine, were taken in the CVS robbery and cash was taken from the convenience store. Police said Shawley was apprehended at a residence on Breakiron Road later Saturday.
Shawley is charged with two counts of robbery, theft, receiving stolen property and making terroristic threats.
Although the robberies occurred in Fayette and Westmoreland, the cases were consolidated. Shawley was arraigned before Connellsville District Judge Ronald J. Haggerty Sr., who set bond at $30,000.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Nov. 19.
