West Toledo man arrested for robbery of pizzeria

Toledo police have arrested a man they said was recorded with a security camera in an armed robbery of a West Toledo pizza restaurant.

Jason Welch, 27, of 5854 Ganymede Dr. in West Toledo, was arrested about 8:05 p.m. Thursday at his residence after police received a tip following the release of the security camera video earlier in the day. He was charged with aggravated robbery and booked into the Lucas County jail pending arraignment Friday in the Toledo Municipal Court, police said.

The video shows a man in a baseball cap enter Brittany Leigh Inc.'s Little Caesars Pizza restaurant at 3245 West Alexis Rd. near Secor Road about 8:05 p.m. Wednesday, lift his jacket to reveal what's believed to be a revolver with a wooden handle, take cash from the clerk, and leave.

Items from the robbery scene have been found at the residence, officers said.
