Arrests in a coin shop robbery proved how useful citizen help is in identifying suspects.

City of Bradford Police say tow men entered the Bradford Coin Shop at 15 Chestnut Street and assaulted the owner, broke the display cases, and stole merchandise before out of the store.

Police say they were quickly able to identify the suspects with help from the community, city surveillance cameras, privately owned security cameras, and a large number of tips.

Officials say they were able to locate and arrest Ozzy Strait, 18, and Michael Kelly, 31, both from Bradford without any problems.

Both men were charged for robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, theft, receiving stolen property and simple assault, according to police.

Both were held in McKean County Prison with bail set $115,000, according to officials.
