Police arrested one of two armed men who they say netted $2,700 and drugs in a home invasion in Vandergrift early Saturday.

Nicholas Alan Nabors, 23, of Jefferson Avenue, Vandergrift, was arrested Sunday.

Officer William Moore said police are looking for a second man, who they declined to identify.

Police said Nabors and the other man, who was armed with a pistol, broke into a house in the 200 block of Sherman Avenue at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Nabors, who police said carried a wooden baseball bat, and the accomplice are accused of forcing one of the victims to open a safe in the residence and taking the money inside.

Police said some of the victims knew Nabors, and he was arrested without incident Sunday.

He is charged with robbery, burglary, aggravated and simple assault, theft, receiving stolen property, making terroristic threats, and conspiracy to commit robbery.

He was arraigned Sunday and taken to the Westmoreland County Prison.

According to the warden's office, he was released the same day after posting $25,000 cash bond.
