COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A man was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated robbery in Colerain Township on Wednesday.

Authorities say they were called to the scene of an armed robbery at the Peach Grove Market Place on Springdale Road around 9 a.m. The suspect had entered the store with a gun, demanded money then fled the store with an undetermined amount of cash.

A witness was able to give authorities a partial license plate number. When detectives ran the plate number in the database, they found the van to be registered to Devin Shannon.

Officers went to his home in the 8300 block Gaines Road where he was arrested around 1 p.m. without incident. Detectives found evidence linking Shannon to the robbery as well as a robbery of the same business on Saturday.

Shannon is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center to await arraignment in Municipal Court on Thursday morning.
