CHERRYHILL TOWNSHIP, INDIANA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — State Police have arrested 37-year-old Justin Ludwig, of Warren, in connection to a house robbery and a subsequent commercial armed robbery in Indiana County.

Both of the robberies occurred on May 15, 2019, in Cherryhill Township.

Police believe he stole several guns, jewelry, and technology from the house before showing up at Pike’s Peak Nursery on foot, asking for assistance with transportation.

While inside the building, he allegedly pulled a gun on two employees and ordered them to get on the ground and open a safe. When the employee refused, Ludwig threatened to hit him with the pistol.

The employee was able to disarm Ludwig and bring him outside where troopers saw the two get into a fight.

Ludwig was taken into custody and is facing several charges, including burglary. He is being held in the Indiana County Jail.
