Girl Scout Robbery Confession Made, Police Say

The 31-year-old former Berwyn resident is charged in other recent incidents, too.

Tredyffrin Township police on Wednesday announced an arrest, and a confession, in the Jan. 20 robbery from a Girl Scout cookie sale at the Berwyn Pathmark.

Jevon Michael Avis, 31, of Carlisle, and formerly of the 300 block of Beechwood Avenue in Berwyn, was arrested Tuesday evening. He admitted stealing from the scouts in an interview with a police detective, police say.

Avis is charged with robbery and related crimes in that case, as well as facing charges in a purse-snatching that happened Monday at Pathmark. His arraignment and preliminary hearing in Devon District Court are pending.

On Jan. 20, according to police, a man they now identify as Avis stole from a Pathmark plastic donation container intended to benefit U.S. troops, then snatched about $20 from Troop 4305's cash box. The scouts closed the box quickly, and the robber fled.
