Williamsport Police Arrest Three Men in Armed Home Invasion Robbery – The Williamsport Bureau of Police arrested Darryl C. Worthy, Davon Grissom, and Stanley Morgan for a home invasion robbery which took place shortly before 11 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2.
Police say Ross Weaver, of 921 Arch Street, was at his residence with three friends when he heard noises at his door and went to investigate. There he was encountered by two black males, one wearing a mask; they then entered the apartment with handguns and threatened the occupants’ lives. The suspects spent nearly 15 minutes in the apartment ransacking it and attempting to open a safe. At one point, the suspects put all four victims in a room, lining them up, and told all of them not to look up. Weaver stated that he felt they were going to be killed at that point.
The armed men fled the scene after taking the safe which they could not open, along with cell phones and a backpack belonging to Weaver. A neighbor of Weaver’s gave chase to two suspects after they left the residence; after five minutes, Weaver drove to his mother’s house a few blocks away to call police.
Officers from Williamsport, as well as officers from Old Lycoming Township, Duboistown, and the Pennsylvania College of Technology responded to the dispatch and set up at an intersection watching for suspicious activity or movement. They observed a Mercury sedan containing three black males coming from Round Hill Road and were inevitably able to make a traffic stop on the vehicle. During the stop officers could see in plain view money stuffed into the seat cushions of the front seat. The vehicle was impounded and a search warrant was obtained. A subsequent search recovered $1435 in currency stuffed in the car seat, cell phones owned by the victims, as well as the backpack. The other two suspects had large sums of money in their possessions as well; gloves and a ski mask were also recovered from the vehicle.
All three suspects are being arraigned in front of District Judge Gary Whiteman on multiple charges.
