Archbold police announced Friday afternoon they have filed a charge of robbery in connection with the Tuesday, Jan. 24 hold-up of the Circle K convenience store.
Martin Schmidt, Archbold police chief, announced in a press release that paperwork was filed Friday, Jan. 27, charging Kenneth A. Thatcher, 25, of Swanton with a single count of robbery.
Records show Thatcher was arrested by Fulton County sheriff deputies and incarcerated at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio Friday, on a charge of contempt of court. That charge is pending in Fulton County Western District Court.
