Alleged Dunkin’ Donuts robber in custody

A 25-year-old East Marlborough Township man has been charged with robbing his local Dunkin’ Donuts on Monday, Oct. 12, said state police.

Troopers from the Avondale barracks, who responded at 12:07 p.m. to the Dunkin’ Donuts in the 900 block of East Baltimore Pike, took Stephen Matthew Cote into custody within 30 minutes of the alleged crime, said a state police press release.

The release said Cote implied having a weapon and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. Based on the victim’s description, police said they found Cote about a half hour later “in close proximity to the crime scene.”

Cote was arraigned on charges that included robbery, terroristic threats, simple assault, and drug possession, court records said. He was remanded to Chester County Prison after failing to post 10 percent of $150,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 20.

Anyone who has information about the alleged crime is asked to call the barracks at 610-268-2022.
