A Greenfield man is being held on a $250,000 bond after an alleged armed robbery in the village Monday.
The Greenfield Police Department said it received a call at 8:21 p.m. Monday reporting the robbery at Domino’s Pizza, located at 205 N. Washington St. in Greenfield. The male suspect entered the business, brandished a firearm and demanded money, the police department said.
When police officers arrived on the scene they were advised by witnesses that the suspect had fled the area on foot, the police department said.
A search warrant was executed in the 300 block of North Street in Greenfield after witnesses identified the suspect as Shawn Howland, 36, of Greenfield. Howland was located inside the residence along with items believed to be connected with the robbery, according to the police department. Greenfield Police Chief Jeremiah Oyer said he was not sure if the residence was Howland’s home, but that it was where he had been staying.
Oyer said the police department was not releasing any information for the time being on whether or not Howland left the crime scene with any money or whether or not he was wearing any type of disguise.
Howland was charged with aggravated robbery and was originally being held in the Greenfield jail on a $50,000 bond.
Howland appeared Wednesday morning in Highland County Court in Greenfield where his bond was set at $250,000. Carol Davis was appointed as his attorney. Howland was transported to the Highland County Justice Center in Hillsboro. He is scheduled to appear in Highland County Court for a preliminary hearing at 10:30 a.m. Monday.
