Covelli robber got $80K; still at large

YOUNGSTOWN — The armed robber who held up an employee for the Covelli Centre’s food and drink vendor got away with about $80,000, and is still at large.

The amount of money taken from the Boston Culinary Group’s office manager during the Jan. 26 robbery was confirmed today by Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes.

Police are still interviewing people and following up on leads, but no arrest has been made, Hughes said. He declined to discuss the leads in the ongoing investigation.

When asked if the robbery could have involved Boston Culinary employees, Hughes said, “It’s always a possibility it’s an inside job. That’s been my experience [with robberies such as this]. But that’s not to say what happened in this case.”
