A second arrest has been made in the December first armed robbery of a Stoneboro-area gas station.

State Police in Mercer County announced Tuesday that they arrested 19 year-old Shantasia Kirchell, from Sandy Lake, on Monday.  Kirchell is said to be an accomplice in the robbery, a crime for which a 16 year-old Fredonia girl was arrested last Friday.

Investigators had originally stated that a lone female with a handgun had robbed an attendant at a gas station on Mercer Road, and had escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

Kirchell was charged Monday with conspiracy, assault, robbery, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, carrying an unlicensed firearm, possession of an instrument of crime and tampering with evidence.

She was lodged in the Mercer County Jail with bond set at $50,000.
