A snow removal contractor who arrived right after the incident told police they noticed a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot across the street. After police viewed surveillance from other nearby stores, they interviewed Estes-Stalnos at the Centre County Prison, who was arrested by state police for robbery on Jan. 8.
Estes-Stalnos admitted to shooting the glass door and entering the pharmacy, but once he was inside he thought to himself “what am I doing” and left the pharmacy without taking anything, according to the criminal complaint.
Estes-Stalnos currently faces charges after an armed robbery at a motel in Centre County on Jan. 8 and a December burglary of a Rite Aid on South Atherton where he made off with more than $4,500 worth of drugs.
He awaits a preliminary hearing set for May 11.
