Accused Cassano’s robber indicted


The man accused of robbing a local Cassano’s Pizza restaurant April 21 and was stopped by an off-duty Clark County sheriff’s deputy there for dinner was indicted Monday by a Clark County grand jury.

Keida D. Johnson, 20, of Yellow Springs, allegedly walked into the restaurant on North Bechtle Avenue about 7 p.m. and approached the cashier with a hood pulled up on his head and a bag in his hand, and demanded money, according to police.

As Deputy Todd Leasure’s wife called 9-1-1, the deputy went out to his vehicle to retrieve his wife’s gun. He returned to the restaurant, ordered the suspect to the ground and held him there until Springfield police arrived.

Additionally, the grand jury indicted Anthony W. Shirk, 35, for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender.

He was listed at large by the sheriff’s office because they didn’t know his address after he was released from prison earlier this month. With the help of the U.S. Marshal’s SOFAST Taskforce, Shirk was located working at the Clark County Fairgrounds and taken into custody April 18.

Shirk’s mandatory registration as a sex offender stems from a 2004 unlawful sexual conduct with a minor case.

The grand jury also returned the following indictments:

Michael E. Wollum, 28, 1017 W. Pleasant St., possession of heroin.

Jeremy A. Chamberlin, 36, 208 ½ W. Euclid Ave., two counts of burglary.

Tori L. Chamberlin, 34, 208 ½ W. Euclid Ave., two counts of burglary.

William G. Dufner Jr., 28, receiving stolen property.

Nathan E. Tompkins, 23, 800 Applewood Drive, New Carlisle, felonious assault.

Bradley T. Harris, 19, 925 East St., improper handling of firearms in a motor vehicle.

Billy E. Brown, 42, 821 S. Isabella St., possession of heroin and possession of cocaine.

Chad A. Drager, 30, 3725 Charlotte Drive, New Carlisle, failure to comply with order or signal of police officer.

Richard A. Hatcher, 51, 1510 Broadway Ave., possession of cocaine.

Kenneth W. Wade, 56, at large, receiving stolen property.

Shaun A. Rieske, 26, 555 W. Parkwood Ave., felonious assault.

Gregg A. Seebeck, 51, 203 Slayton St., New Carlisle, four counts of theft.

Michael T. Sibole, 21, at large, trespass in a habitation when a person is present or likely to be present.

Jason B. Petitto, 24, 11730 Gerlaugh Road, Medway, abduction and domestic violence.

Michael G. Goheen, 39, 226 White Cliffs Court, possession of heroin.
