OTTAWA — Last Wednesday, a Putnam County grand jury handed down a three count indictment against an Ottawa teen suspected of armed robbery.

The grand jury charged Isaiah Anthony Oliver, 18, with one count each of aggravated robbery with specifications, a felony of the first degree; theft, a felony of the fifth degree; and possession of criminal tools, a felony of the fifth degree.

The charges stem from events occuring in the early morning hours of Saturday, July 27. According to a release issued by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Oliver was sought after 911 dispatchers received a report of an armed robbery in Leipsic. Further investigation of that event culminated in investigators pursuing Oliver as a suspect, and issuing a warrant for his arrest. On Monday, officers with the Findlay Police Department served that warrant there, and remanded custody of the suspect to the Putnam County Jail.

During an initial hearing on Monday, July 29, Municipal Court Judge Chad Niese, at the request of the state, set bond at $250,000. Oliver was arraigned in Common Pleas Court on Thursday, Aug. 1, where Judge Keith Schierloh continued the bond and set a pretrial date of Thursday, Aug 22.

If convicted on all charges, Oliver faces a possible maximum term of confinement of 11-and-a-half years, and a maximum fine of $23,500.
