Lawrence suspect in armed robbery turns himself in

Just after 11:30 this morning, 26-year-old Lawrence resident, Joeseph Michael Splechter, turned himself into police for yesterday’s armed robbery of the Check Into Cash located at 2108 W. 27th Street. 

It was reported that a heavyset male, approximately 5’6” or 5’7”, entered the business, indicated that he was in possession of a weapon and demanded money. 

The suspect then fled with an undetermined sum of cash, all of which was recovered or accounted for. 

Splechter turned himself in at the urging of family after seeing his image on LPD social media, and was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.
