[lehighvalleylive.com – 2023.01.25] A Bethlehem man wanted for the armed robbery of a city dry cleaner was arrested Wednesday morning by police and U.S. Marshals.
Ryen Michael Mohr, 19, was found in an Allentown home and taken into custody in connection with the robbery last Saturday, Bethlehem police said.
Mohr was arraigned on charges of robbery, possession of a weapon, theft and carrying a firearm without a license. He was sent to Northampton County Prison after failing to post $250,000 bail, court records show.
Officers were called at 11:28 a.m. Saturday for the armed robbery at Bethlehem Star Dry Cleaners, 1364 Linden St.
The suspect displayed a gun and took $400, police said. The store owner reported chasing the suspect as he fled on foot on East Greenwich Street, and that the robber took off his gray jacket and black face mask during the chase.
Surveillance video from the store showed the suspect in a red hoodie under a gray coat, wearing a face mask and holding a gun. The hand holding a gun had a distinctive tattoo on it, police said.
Police said they were able to identify the robber as Mohr, which included finding his Facebook page and seeing a photo showing his right hand with the same distinctive tattoo. Mohr’s last known address is near the dry cleaner, police said, and the suspect fled toward the address after the robbery.
