A 33-year-old South Toledo man was arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court for the armed robbery of a west side liquor store.

Matthew Adams of 941 S. Reynolds Rd. is charged with one count each of robbery and kidnapping for an armed robbery at Joseph Brothers Beverage Center, 4129 Talmadge Rd., Sunday.

His bond was set at $200,000; he was being held in the Lucas County jail.
