Cumberland Police:

On 12/14/2011 22 year old Gregory Thomas Laisure was arrested by C3I Investigators on the parking lot of a downtown business in Cumberland. Laisure was wanted in connection with the series of business robberies and home invasion robberies which have occurred in Allegany County, and is a suspect in robberies which occurred in nearby Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Earlier, the Pennsylvania State Police executed a search warrant at a private residence in Stringtown, Pennsylvania, and as a result information was developed that helped lead Investigators to a possible location for Laisure.

Laisure is being charged with numerous counts of Armed Robbery, Theft, and Assault for the robberies which occurred at the Brass Kactus in Cumberland, Billie's Gas & Grub in Flintstone, and at a private residence in Rawlings.

23 year Cody Jerome Crabtree, 20 year old Cory Joseph Crabtree, and 21 year old Zachary Burdette Huffman have already been arrested and charged in connection with the same incidents.

Laisure is currently awaiting an initial appearance before a District Court Commissioner.

The investigation is continuing, and at least one additional arrest is anticipated.
