Phillip D. Archer, suspected of involvement in an armed robbery that took place earlier this year in May, was arrested earlier today in Suffield, Conn., Easton Police announced this evening.

Easton Police detectives personally extradited  Archer, taking custody of him in Connecticut, where he was incarcerated at Macdougal-Walker Correctional Institution, and transported him back to Easton, according to an EPD press release.

Archer was arraigned around 7:30 p.m. at the Northampton County Central Booking Center on charges of criminal conspiracy, robbery, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, and for being a former convict in possession of a firearm, all charges stemming from an armed robbery that occured on in the 100 block of South Sixth Street shortly after 3 a.m. on May 28, police said

He was subsequently committed to Northampton County Prison after failing to post a required $100,000 straight bail, they added.

EPD says investigation is continuing, and no further information is being  released at this time.

According to online Connecticut court records, Archer, 34, was serving a 33 month sentence for a probation violation related to a 2008 conviction for selling illegal narcotics in 2006 when he was extradited today. He was originally ordered to serve 15 years in prison but was released after six years, in March of 2012.
