Northern York County Regional Police Department has arrested a Dover Township man for the June 30 robbery of a Turkey Hill Minit Market.
Joseph Michael Kingston, 23, of 2600 Carlisle Road, was arrested at his home Wednesday, police said. He faces arraignment on charges of robbery, simple assault, receiving stolen property, theft by unlawful taking, and reckless endangerment.
The store is located at 2820 Carlisle Road, just down the street from Kingston's home. About 2:30 a.m. on June 30, a store clerk said a robber entered the store and displayed a knife.
