Police say on Oct. 10, Shannonhouse also robbed an employee at gunpoint inside of the Taste of Thai restaurant on South Broad Street.     

Police say they arrested Shannonhouse after reviewing surveillance video, and later recovered a BB gun believed to be used during the robberies.

He was held on a $200,250 bond for both cases and the warrant, and is scheduled to appear in Milford court on Oct. 22.
