Wanted men probably shouldn’t visit their friends in prison. Police arrested David Ruppert at the York County prison (Penn.) while he was visiting Robert Haley, his friend and alleged accomplice in the armed robbery of a woman making a bank deposit.
West Manchester Township Detective Jeffrey Shell was checking addresses whre Ruppert may have lived when he learned from an acquaintance of Ruppert that he might be visiting someone at the prison. Snell immediately called the prison, found Ruppert was there, and told authorities to hold him until he arrived. Authorities say Ruppert went to the prison to find out if Haley was going to rat him out.
Ruppert and Haley face a preliminary hearing on March 27 on charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy, and weapons violations.
