U.S. Marshals found a fugitive — accused of robbing a Wendy's in Germantown on Aug. 16 and breaking through the drive-through window of a McDonald's in East Germantown on Aug. 18 — hiding in the crawl space of his girlfriend’s house in upstate New York on Friday.
Jerome Edwards, 40, of Church Street near Frankford in Kensington, was also wanted for violating the terms of his probation, which stemmed from a weapons violation.
Officials said Edwards surrendered to the U.S. Marshals in Albany, N.Y., without incident when they arrived around noon on Friday.
Just after 9 p.m. on Aug. 16, police said, Edwards robbed a Wendy's on Wayne Avenue near Chelten Avenue at gunpoint and ran from the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of cash.
