Thumbs up to the public for their role in taking an alleged armed robber off the streets. Jamestown Police Dept. Capt. Robert Samuelson attributes charges Thursday night against Thomas Lawson of Jamestown in connection with late-March robberies at CVS in Brooklyn Square and the 7-11 store on East Second Street to tips from the public, including recognizing a sweatshirt logo. According to Samuelson, investigators have several leads for the second person involved in the CVS robbery and that an acquaintance of Lawson is a possible person-of-interest. "It all came down to tips from the public," Samuelson told The Post-Journal on Thursday.
