Phila. man wanted for Exton jewelry theft


EXTON An arrest warrant has been issued for a 57-year-old Philadelphia man who the police say was one of four people to swipe $15,000 in diamond rings from an Exton Square Mall jewelry store in December.

Dewayne Baxter and three other men entered Zales at about 4:15 p.m. Dec. 27, 2013 and distracted several store employees in order to steal the jewelry, according to a news release from the West Whiteland Township police. Two men, Kevin Blagmon and Keith Walker, were previously arrested; a preliminary hearing has not yet been held.

The police said Baxter is also wanted in connection to a bank robbery in Philadelphia.
