An 18-year-old will be arraigned in court today in connection to an armed robbery that occurred at the Shell gas station in Miamisburg last month.
Kenyon Brown, of Kettering, is charged with aggravated robbery and kidnapping, both with a three-year firearm specification; conspiracy to commit robbery, all felonies, and a misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business in the May 2 incident.
Police say he and two other people entered the store, 1160 E. Central Ave., and stole cash, JUUL pods, cigarettes and lighters. One of the robbers had a gun and reportedly pointed it at a clerk.
Brown and three other juveniles were spotted in hoodies behind the business May 4 around 12:45 a.m., and the clerk called police believing the store was about to be robbed.
“Once detained and identified, all three subjects along with a female found to be with them were interviewed. It was then confirmed that at least two of these subjects were involved in the previous robbery,” police said in a prepared statement.
Brown has been in Montgomery County Jail since his arrest.
We will update this story with any new details that emerge from today’s arraignment.
