3 Arrested In Jeannette Robbery

By Trina Orlando

JEANNETTE (KDKA) — Police have arrested three people in connection with the robbery of an elderly Jeannette woman earlier this week.

The 78-year-old woman was getting groceries at the Rite Aid on Clay Avenue Tuesday. When she left, the men grabbed her purse and caused her to fall to the ground and hurt her arm.

The suspects took off, but were later taken into custody. They have been identified as 18-year-olds John Feather and Adam Waggoner.

Police saw the two men outside the Rite Aid store before the robbery and recognized one from another incident. They later used that information to lead them to the suspects.

Police have also charged 27-year-old Jacklynn Smith. She was caught on surveillance tape using one of the elderly woman’s ATM cards at a convenience store later that night.

Smith could eventually be facing more charges because police believe she witnessed the robbery and offered to keep quiet if the suspects gave her a cut of what was in the purse. They allegedly gave her $10.

All three suspects are in the Westmoreland County Jail.

The victim underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday and remains in the hospital. She is expected to be OK.

    She looks much older than 18. I guess the drugs have a tendency of doing that.
