Three men with Archbold addresses and a former Archbold resident were indicted by the Fulton County Grand Jury, Monday, Aug. 18.
Kyle D. Stipp, 23, and Scott D. Burris II, 24, were each indicted for their alleged roles in an armed robbery of a Wauseon convenience store on May 30.
Stipp was arrested July 29 on a charge of aggravated robbery filed by Wauseon police. As of Friday afternoon, he was being held at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio on a $1 million cash bond.
The grand jury indicted Stipp on a count of aggravated robbery and a count of possession of criminal tools.
Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said in a press release, “On or about May 30, (Stipp) allegedly possessed a handgun while committing or attempting to commit a theft offense. He also allegedly possessed criminal tools intended for use in the commission of a felony.”
Burris was arrested July 31 on a charge of complicity.
The grand jury handed down an indictment charging Burris with complicity to commit aggravated robbery and possession of criminal tools.
“On or about May 30, (Burris) allegedly aided or abetted another who possessed a deadly weapon while committing or attempting to commit a theft offense,” Haselman said.
“He also allegedly possessed criminal tools intended for use in the commission of a felony.”
Keith Torbet, Wauseon police chief, said previously Burris was the alleged getaway driver.
Burris is free on his own recognizance, subject to house arrest.
Joshua D. Liechty, 33, Fayette, was indicted by the grand jury on a single count of domestic violence. He had previously lived in Archbold.
The indictment stems from an incident that occurred on July 27, when Archbold police were called to the home of Melissa A. Grime, 38, 500 South Street, at about 12:30 am on a possible domestic violence case.
After speaking with Grime, officers found Liechty hiding in an upstairs room of the house. At the time, there was a protection order in place, protecting her from Liechty.
Officers noted in their report they observed signs of a physical altercation between Grime and Liechty, so Liechty was placed under arrest on charges of violating a protection order, obstructing official business and domestic violence.
As of Friday, Liechty was being held at CCNO on a $25,000 cash bond.
Allen M. Pedigo, 33, Archbold, was indicted on two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle and one count of breaking and entering.
Haselman said, “On or about Aug. 10, (Pedigo) allegedly stole a motor vehicle.
“On or about June 26, he allegedly trespassed on the premises of another with intent to steal a second motor vehicle.”
Pedigo was arrested by Fulton County sheriff deputies, Wednesday, Aug. 20. As of Friday afternoon, he was being held at CCNO.
