A Lancaster boy is facing felony charges after police say he robbed a 75-year-old woman at the Eastern Hills Mall.

State police arrested Austin Keller, Sunday, after they say he stole the woman's purse and other items.  Police say Keller was wearing a mask during the robbery.

Police used a K-9 to track Keller to a nearby motel, but they couldn't find him.

Soon after, police say they got a call about a suspicious man at a gas station.  The caller recorded Keller's license plate and troopers were able to find him at his house.

Keller is now charged with Robbery and Grand Larceny.
