LIMA — A Lima man was arrested for robbery after a reported incident at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Dollar General, 1330 Bellefontaine St.
Shandell Hodge, 48, of Lima, was arrested a few blocks away on East Eureka Street with the aid of civilians in the area.
According to the report, a black male suspect entered the store wearing a ball cap, sun glasses, a long-sleeved hooded sweat shirt, dark pants and a cloth covering his face. He approached one of the cashiers, took her to the register, acting as if he was concealing a weapon and demanding the money from the register. Once he had the money, the suspect fled from the store and ran westbound through yards and alleys.
