Suspect in Sharon PNC Bank robbery turns self in


SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – According to Sharon Police, the man wanted in connection to the armed robbery of the PNC Bank in Sharon on Friday turned himself in.

Dana L. Haynes turned himself in Sunday morning, according to police, and is facing charges of robbery with intent to inflict serious bodily harm and theft by unlawful taking.

Haynes was arraigned around 11 a.m. in Mercer County Court where bond was set at $150,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 16.A warrant was issued Saturday for Haynes after he was identified in surveillance video.

Police say Haynes walked into the PNC Bank on East State Street around 11:45 a.m. Friday and demanded money from a teller.

The bank teller told police that Haynes told her he wanted to withdraw money from his account but he did not have a bank card or ID. He then gave her a social security number that did not match any accounts in the system, before saying his name was “Robert Johnson,” which also didn’t match.

The teller said Haynes then placed his right hand into his right jacket pocket and placed his covered hand onto the counter. He quietly stated to her that he wanted all the money in the drawer and not to trip any alarm or he would shoot her.

The teller said she did as ordered and provided Haynes with the cash from her drawer. An audit of the drawer indicated that at least $3,000 was taken.

The teller said that after receiving the cash, Haynes walked from the bank through the Chestnut Street door and was not seen again by any employee of the bank.
