Suspect in robberies held in Lucas Co. jail


A Toledo man who authorities believe made a wardrobe change between robbing West Toledo convenience stores remained in the Lucas County jail late Thursday.

Andrew Snyder, 30, of 1931 Newport Rd. is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count each of drug abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia. The suspect, who appeared in Toledo Municipal Court on Thursday, was ordered to remain in the jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Police allege that Mr. Snyder robbed two stores early Wednesday: first a Speedway at 1708 Tremainsville Rd. followed by a 7-Eleven store at 3749 Upton Ave.

In each incident, a masked bandit held a long-bladed knife up to a clerk and demanded cash. In the second holdup, the robber, who was wearing a different hooded sweatshirt, also demanded cigarettes, according to police.

Mr. Snyder was arrested Wednesday. His next court appearance is Thursday.
