Shane Chandler, 20, Mason, W.Va., was arrested and has given a statement on the case, Sheriff Robert Beegle said. His brother, Alexander, was arrested over the weekend and had also made a cooperative statement to investigators.
Shane Chandler is expected to appear in Meigs County Court on Wednesday. He and his brother are both charged with armed robbery. The store clerk working at the time said the men were wielding large butcher-type knives when they entered the Middleport-area convenience store.
Beegle said investigators in the case found physical evidence relating to the crime and questioned the younger brother, who admitted his part in the robbery. Those investigators were also able to access store security videos in their probe.
Beegle said the younger Chandler’s clothing was found on Ohio 7 just below the convenience store, and that he was arrested in that area.
