FORT WAYNE – Two Indiana men are being held in connection to the November robbery of the Paulding Rite Aid store.
Kaz Shenfeld, 23, of Harlan, and Jared Schibley, 23, of Woodburn, both have warrants for aggravated robbery (F1) issued Jan. 25 by Paulding County Court and are being held in the Allen County, Ind. jail.
According to a press release from the Paulding Police Department, investigators followed leads and tips that led to the warrants for the Allen County residents.
An Allen County Jail representative said Shenfeld was arrested Jan. 19 by their county deputies for six charges of theft and a probation violation.
Schibley was arrested Jan. 22 by the Woodburn Police Department on the local warrant. Jail officials say he is being held on a $250,000 extradition bond and has a Feb. 6 court appearance set in Allen County Circuit Court.
Police Chief Randy Crawford said the investigation is ongoing.
No local court dates have been set.
On Nov. 29, around 1:27 p.m., a male entered the Rite Aid store and went to the pharmacy counter. He handed an employee a note demanding prescription drugs. The note also stated he had a gun, although no weapon was shown.
The man received some prescription drugs and left through the front door. He allegedly got into a car parked across the street, driven by a second male.
