A man is behind bars after being identified as the suspect who allegedly was involved in an armed robbery in the area, police said.

Orange County resident Daniel Webster, 44, of Middletown, allegedly walked into Wendy’s on Route 211 East in Wallkill at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6, brandishing a handgun and demanding a manager open the restaurant’s safe, the Town of Wallkill police said.

It is alleged that Webster took an unknown amount of cash after making the threat and took off, prompting a police investigation.
