A man in Pennsylvania faces a smorgasbord of charges in connection with the robbery of a local dealer. He says he was not the crowbar-weilding attacker.
Police in Williamsport, PA zeroed in on a suspect in the violent attack on a local baseball card dealer late last week.
Sunday night, they found the man they were looking for.
David Baney, Jr. was arrested at a home in the city where the cops found a bag containing some of the vintage cards believed to have been stolen from the Montour Baseball Shop back in March.
The dealer, Ronald Aderhold, had told a harrowing tale of being hit over the head with a crowbar after a man told him to hand over nearly $50,000 in merchandise including several Hall of Famers from the 1950s and 60s and some more modern rookie cards.
Police had no name, only a limited description to go on but tips from the TV station’s coverage helped identify Baney as the suspect.
Baney was in court on Tuesday, facing multiple counts in connection with the crime. It’s not his first brush with the law, according to the local newspaper, which was there for his court appearance.
