2 arrested in a connection with rash of Toledo robberies


Two Toledo men have been arrested in connection with a series of robberies in West Toledo this week.

Dustin Werner, 25, and Anthony Fesh, 32, are charged with multiple counts of robbery in connection with the following cases:

- Family Video, 5886 Dorr St., Monday.

- Tan Pro, 2014 W. Laskey Rd., Wednesday.

- Tan Pro, 3324 Secor Rd., Wednesday.

- The UPS Store, 3550 Executive Pkwy., Wednesday.

- Dairy Queen, 5300 Monroe, Thursday.

- Apricato, 4137 Talmadge Rd., Friday.

Police spotted the pair in a vehicle in the parking lot at the Kroger supermarket at Secor and Monroe about 3:45 p.m. Friday after the Apricato robbery and were taken in for questioning.

The common thread to the six robberies, Sgt. William Wauford said in a prepared statement, was the written note one or the other of them men passed to a store clerk. Police previously said the robbers’ physical descriptions and clothing were similar, too -- particularly their choice of sunglasses.
