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.
East Pennsboro Township Police released more details about two robberies that occurred Sunday after State Police at Carlisle and Silver Spring Township Police shared information about two robberies on Monday connected to the same suspect.

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.
The man is believed to also be connected with two robberies that occurred in Cumberland County on Sunday, and another one that occurred earlier Monday morning in Silver Spring Township.
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.
