East Pennsboro robbery

East Pennsboro Township Police, and other police agencies, are looking for this man in connection with four robberies in two days.

A Chambersburg man who police say committed a “spree” of six robberies, including four in Cumberland County, is now in custody.

State police said Steven Mark Revelle, 47, committed 2 robberies in East Pennsboro Township, one in Silver Spring Township, one in South Middleton Township, one in Greencastle, Franklin County, and one in Hagerstown, Maryland.

One of the robberies occurred during the evening of Sept. 1 at the Gulf Station at 1 Erford Road, according to an affidavit of probable cause from East Pennsboro Township Police Patrolman Stephen Ruff. A man entered the store and handed the cashier a note saying “give me money or you’ll be in trouble,” after which a clerk handed the contents of a cash register, $40, to the robber, the affidavit said. The man also told the cashier he had a gun.

Another robbery took place the name night, at the Shell gas station at 630 Enola Road, police said. The robber gave the cashier a note saying, “Hurry up, give me the money,” and put his right hand in his back, as if he had a weapon, Ruff wrote. He received $202.08 from that cash register.

It was determined that the same person had committed those robberies, a recent robbery at Speedway at 7034 Carlisle Pike investigated by Silver Spring Township Police, and a recent robbery at Super Mart in the 2000 block of West Trindle Road in South Middleton Township investigated by state police. Revelle was apprehended Sept. 5 and confined to Cumberland County Prison, and was unable to post $92,000 monetary bail, according to court documents. He was charged with separate counts of robbery for each of the four Cumberland County incidents.
