Both men were taken into custody after a gunman robbed a shopper inside a mall men's room, then led police on a short pursuit to a nearby neighborhood, said Sgt. Edward Carney of the Cherry Hill police. Police identified the man suspected of being the gunman as Todd B. Steiger, 33, of Philadelphia.

Dania Sargenc often joked that the neon sign above Benash Liquor Store, with its bold yellow lettering, rusty red background, and arrow pointing toward the door, would one day be hers. The sign went up in 1948, when her uncle opened the store along Route 38 in Cherry Hill. Soon her father worked there, and even through ownership changes during the next 66 years, the sign remained. Then, last week, it came crashing down. What was one man's misfortune - accidentally toppling the sign with a red pickup truck - was Sargenc's chance to reclaim a part of her family's history.
