Armed robbers strike in city

Arrest made in 1 of 3 heists over weekend

BLADE STAFF

Toledo police over the weekend investigated three armed robberies, making an arrest in one.

Bradley Myler, 27, of 3125 Brock Dr. is charged with one count of robbery in the hold-up of AJ's Carry Out in East Toledo on Saturday. Mr. Myler was arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court on Monday and was ordered to be held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Police said a man armed with a gun went into the store at 868 E. Broadway St. at 12:51 p.m. Saturday and gave a clerk a note that read, "Give me $200 or else," and then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A robbery at a South Toledo carryout that was reported to police Sunday evening remains under investigation.

According to a Toledo police report, a man went into an In & Out Mart at 2125 S. Byrne Rd. at 4:11 p.m. and demanded cash from a clerk who was stocking shelves.

The clerk put cash into a brown paper bag for the armed suspect, who then fled the store and ran toward South Detroit Avenue.

A report described the robber as white, about 6 feet tall, 170 pounds, with blond hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt, blue-jean shorts, and a black hooded sweatshirt he used to cover his face. He had tattoos covering both arms and a buzzed haircut, the report says.

Toledo police are also investigating a weekend armed robbery at a Point Place Subway restaurant, 4870 N. Summit St.

An employee told police he was counting cash from a register, getting ready to close for the night, when a man armed with a gun came in at 9:49 p.m. Saturday and demanded cash.

The robber, according to a police report, was described as black, about 6 feet tall and 225 pounds and was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, black sunglasses, black bandana, black pants, and black gloves. Police reported recovering a bullet casing from outside the restaurant, although it was reported that no shots were fired.

Anyone with information on any of these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
