ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A fingerprint left on a snack cake led police to a gas station robber.

Sean Thomas Berold, 26, is charged with one count of aggravated robbery for an incident at the Exxon Station on Mt. Carmel Road on June 11.

Police say Berold approached the clerk at the station and stated, "Give me the money or I will kill you."  The suspect went behind the counter and removed an undetermined amount of U.S. Currency and fled the store.  No one was injured during the offense.

In the weeks to follow, detectives disseminated wanted flyers to Crimestoppers, businesses and apartments in the area of the robbery.  Numerous tips were received providing the name of possible suspects, among those names reported was the name of Sean Berold. 

As a result, evidence technicians identified a fingerprint belonging to Berold on a snack cake left by the suspect at the Exxon Station.  Additional interviews led to the issuance of a warrant on July 3, 2012 for the arrest of Berold.

Detectives found Berold at the Warren County Jail, where he was being held on an unrelated charge. Berold will be transferred to Hamilton County at a date unknown at this time, following adjudication of his charges in Warren County.
