FBI: Man surrenders in $200,000 home invasion

The third man wanted in connection with an August home invasion that targeted Delaware County Asian business owners and netted $200,000 turned himself in to the FBI this morning, authorities said.

Nyfis Toppings, 26, was convinced by family members to surrender, Special Agent J.J. Klaver, FBI spokesman, said. Toppings turned himself in this morning, without a lawyer, at FBI headquarters at Arch and 6th streets, Klaver said.

Authorities had been "looking for him pretty aggressively at various addresses" recently, according to Klaver. Two of Toppings alleged accomplices gave him up when they were arrested in October in connection with the Havertown home invasion robbery of an Asian family that owns K&C Beverage in Upper Darby, according to court documents.
