However, a search of Shank’s car turned up a bloody towel, a roll of tape that matched the tape the victim was bound with and the victim’s wallet, cellphone, keys and cane, according to the statement.
Byrd and Shank are each held on $500,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail. They are next due May 27 in Dayton Municipal Court.
