PAULDING – Authorities are searching for an area man who has been indicted in connection with last week’s robbery at a Grover Hill gas station.

“Due to the overwhelming amount of tips called or e-mailed into the sheriff’s office, deputies were able to aggressively investigate the Ross’s Gas Station robbery, which occurred Oct. 4,” according to Sheriff Jason Landers. “To date, the investigation has resulted in an indictment for one of the individuals whom authorities believe is responsible for the crime.

“On Oct. 10, deputies presented this case to the grand jury, which returned an indictment for the arrest of 34-year-old James Robert Reynolds of Fort Jennings. Reynolds was indicted on one count of aggravated robbery, a felony of the second degree.

“We know there is a second white male still unidentified at this time,” according to Landers. “We will follow leads as they continue to come in. Our information tells us Reynolds is on the run. We will need the public’s help to locate him. I am grateful for all the tips we are receiving in this case. A lot of our success to get Reynolds indicted came from a joint effort involving the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Van Wert County Sheriff’s Office and the Adult Parole Authority. This is another fine example of multiple agencies working together to resolve a horrible crime.”
