Steelton man charged in 2 restaurant robberies

A Steelton man is facing charges in two armed robberies at a suburban Harrisburg restaurant.

Andre Lamont Mosley, 45, is suspected in heists at the Waffle House in the 3800 block of Union Deposit Road last Friday and again on Wednesday, according to Susquehanna Township police.

On the early morning of Nov. 8, a robber approached a waitress and placed a hard object against her side as he demanded money from the cash register.

Wednesday night, a man robbed the restaurant using a small silver pistol.

Police said after they broadcast the robber's description to other departments in the area, a Harrisburg police officer saw a man matching the description walking in the 1200 block of Berryhill Street early Thursday.

Investigators were able to have a witness identify Mosley as the robber, and he was taken into custody and placed in Dauphin County Prison on $200,000 bail.

After further investigation, authorities said they also identified Mosley as the suspect in the Nov. 8 robbery.
