Police Name Robbery Suspect Who Put Main Line Schools on Lockdown

Two weeks after an armed robbery led to the lockdown of suburban Philadelphia high schools and a nearby college, police on the Main Line named a suspect.

Radnor Township Police identified robbery suspect Kenneth Jones as the gunman believed to be responsible for the Dec. 17 heist along Pine Tree Road that put Radnor Township High School and nearby Radnor Elementary School on lockdown.

Jones robbed two men working outside a property of a small amount of cash then fled the scene, said Radnor police.

Police said Jones, who appears to be from Philadelphia, should be considered armed and dangerous. He may also be responsible for a series of heists in Montgomery County including a convenience store robbery in Norristown and has a history of violence and drug offenses, said investigators.

Cabrini College, which is near the site of the armed robbery, urged students and staff to stay inside during the original manhunt for the robber.

Radnor Township posted a $7,500 reward for Jones' arrest and conviction. Anyone with information is asked to call 610-688-5603.
