Man Charged with Palmer Robbery Nabbed in Bethlehem

Palmer police report a man suspected of robbing the Comfort Inn at the 25th Street Shopping Center on Friday evening was apprehended in Bethlehem early on Saturday.

At approximately 7:15 p.m. Friday evening, police were dispatched to the hotel after a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt reportedly entered the lobby, walked up to the front desk and demanded money from the clerks while holding his arm underneath the front of his shirt, indicating he had some type of weapon, authorities say. The man was then given an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, they added.

Eric Share, 26, was taken into custody by Bethlehem Police at approximately 2:50 a.m. Saturday morning at his apartment on the 400 block of Keystone Avenue in the city and is being charged with robbery, theft by unlawful taking, recklessly endangering another person, and making terroristic threats. Palmer police said Share was identified from having rented rooms at the Comfort Inn in the past.

Share has reportedly been arraigned on the charges and was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $25,000 bail.
