Concord police say they have arrested both suspects in Irving Mainway robbery

CONCORD - Police say they now have both men accused of robbing the Irving Mainway convenience store on the morning of Oct. 12.

Video surveillance footage helped detectives identify one of the two suspects who had showed the store clerk a gun tucked in his pants. By checking on some of his known hang-outs they were able to locate him -- and he was even wearing some of the same clothes observed in the video, police said

John Conkle, 39, listed as homeless, was charged with armed robbery the day after the robbery.

Police also had information on a second man, who'd acted as a look-out, and arrested him Wednesday when he went to meet with his probation officer in Salem, Mass.

Steven Jones, 36, whose last known address was McKinley Street in Concord, was charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and falsifying physical evidence after he allegedly helped Conkle change his appearance after the robbery.

Jones was arraigned in Salem, Mass. district court on Tuesday and waived extradition. On Wednesday, he was transported to Concord police department. He refused bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Concord District Court.
