An Applebee's men's room and a dumpster behind a Bob Evans were where police found two men they accused of robbing a Hermitage jewelry store today.
Two men -- one with a gun -- robbed King's Jewelry in the Shenango Valley Mall in Hermitage, Mercer County, at 11:49 a.m. Hermitage police said witnesses told them the men escaped by running south toward the intersection of North Hermitage Road and the Shenango Valley Freeway.
In a press release, Hermitage police identified the men as Anthony D. Jacobs, 23, and Terrance L. Jackson, 40, both of Columbus, Ohio.
Police said they found Jackson with some of the stolen jewelry in an Applebee's men's room. When he refused to to surrender, the Mercer County Critical Incident Response Team was called and arrested him without incident.
Police found Jacobs in a dumpster behind a Bob Evans.
Neither Jackson nor Jacobs was armed when police arrested them.
The gun used in the robbery was found near the Shenango Valley Mall.
