Mar. 07, 2003
CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) _ Police arrested a man who left his cell phone behind after an alleged gas station robbery.
Terrance Triplett, 22, of Mount Oliver, was charged with robbing a Sunoco station Tuesday. He was jailed on robbery, theft, conspiracy and other charges. It could not be immediately determined if he had an attorney.
Authorities said Triplett was with another man _ whose name was not released _ when the other man pointed a gun at the clerk, who handed over money from the cash register and his wallet.
Police said they found a cell phone, left behind as the robbers ran away, and they traced it to Triplett.
