Drug deal turns into armed robbery in Lower Paxton Twp


Three people who thought they were going to buy drugs ended up being the victims of an armed robbery in Lower Paxton Township. It happened around 10:40pm in the first block of Beacon Drive in the Williamsburg Estates apartment complex.

The victims, two Susquehanna Township residents and a Steelton resident, were in a car and picked up the two suspects in the Brook Apartments, intending to buy drugs.  After first driving them to another apartment complex in the Township, they went to Williamsburg Estates where the two suspects pulled handguns and robbed all three victims. Police say they took cash, wallets and cell phones.

The suspects are described as young black males; one with an afro-style haircut and wearing long gym shorts and a T-shirt and the other was wearing a black hat, white T-shirt and white cargo shorts. Both were armed, one with what appeared to the victims to be a Glock and the other with a black and silver handgun.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Lower Paxton Township Police Department at (717) 657-5656, the anonymous Tip-Line at (717) 724-8317 or Crimestoppers at (800) 262-3080.
