Police have arrested a Dover Township man now accused of snatching a woman's purse at a Dover Township car wash last week.
Joseph Michael Kingston, 23, of 2600 Carlisle Road, was arrested without incident at his home on Monday, according to Northern York County Regional Police.
He was taken to the county's central booking unit to be charged with robbery, theft and receiving stolen property for the June 27 robbery, police said.
According to police a 30-year-old township woman was at a car wash in the 2600 block of Carlisle Road about 6 a.m., getting change out of her purse.
