Armed robbery suspect caught in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN — Police officers from several departments arrested a man they said has spent the last several months terrorizing local businesses.

Officers from Youngstown, Boardman and Austintown arrested Schon Howard, 44, of Campbell, on Friday at a Sycamore Street home on the city’s North Side. He is believed to have committed robberies at four different businesses in those jurisdictions since July.
