James Taylor, 21, also entered a not guilty plea on a charge of obstructing official business with bond set at $1,000.
FIRST REPORT (Sept. 7):
Police recovered an air pistol and a note from one of two suspects Friday they said tried to rob Rite Aid in downtown Enon.
Officers were called just before 12:30 p.m. to the pharmacy at 101 W. Main St. on a report of a possible robbery about to occur.
As police were arriving, they found two men leaving the store. One was taken into custody, and after a short foot chase the second was taken into custody as well.
Dasean A. Whitehead, 19, who Enon police said had the bb gun and note, was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of possessing criminal tools stemming from the incident.
James P. Taylor, 21, has charges out of Enon pending, police said. However, he was booked into the jail on suspicion of aggravated robbery, trafficking in cocaine and drug abuse charges filed by other agencies in Clark County.
Enon police said investigators are working with multiple agencies to determine whether the pair is connected to any similar pharmacy robberies in the area.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office assisted police on scene.
