Cemetery Robbery Suspect Arrested

A suspect has been arrested in connection with the strong-arm robbery that took place in Easton Cemetery early Friday afternoon.

Anthony Joseph Giamoni of 141 South 12th St. was taken into custody around 10 p.m. Friday night and charged with robbery, theft, and simple assault, the Easton Police Department reported.

He was then arraigned at Northampton County central booking and lodged in Northampton County Prison in lieu of $35,000 bail, authorities said.

"The officers did a remarkable job!" said EPD Inspector Daniel Reagan. "Officers were on-scene quickly and immediately began gathering information and evidence.  Additionally, there was cooperation from the victim and a witness.  That was very helpful in resolving this matter quickly, and that aided us greatly with being able to get this person off the street."

He added, "It shows that when victims and witnesses fully cooperate with police we can be much more effective."
