Bel Air police await extradition of suspect in 7-Eleven robbery, police chase into Pa.

Bel Air police are waiting for the man who allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven and carjacked a cab driver last month to be extradited from Pennsylvania.

Police Chief Leo Matrangola said Thursday the state's attorney's office is awaiting the extradition of Raymond Kallenberger, 24, of Edgewood, who allegedly took cash from the register of 7-Eleven in the 200 block of Baltimore Pike, then made off with a taxi and was chased by police into York County.


Matrangola said Bel Air police were not involved in the March 5 chase beyond this area, but said police were only notified after Kallenberger was cutting people off and driving erratically.

The suspect was ultimately arrested after driving the car into a river, Matrangola said.


Kallenberger was found naked, on top of the car as it sank into the Susquehanna, when he was arrested and had to be taken to York Hospital to be treated for hypothermia, according to a witness cited by the York Daily Record.

He allegedly started the day by stealing money from the 7-Eleven at about 9 a.m., then fleeing and carjacking a Victory Cab from the MVA parking lot at West MacPhail Road and Route 24, several blocks away from the 7-Eleven.
