( Hamilton County ) - The sheriff says it was the same man who robbed multiple area businesses over the course of about a month, and that man is now in custody.
From March 22 to April 15, investigators say 30-year-old Jacob Goodwin of Anderson Twp either brought a gun or implied that he had a gun, and robbed a UDF, a pair of Speedway gas stations, a CVS pharmacy, and Pearl's bar on Eastern Avenue in Columbia-Tusculum. Investigators from the sheriff's office, Cincinnati Police, and Norwood Police all collaborated on the investigations.
Goodwin allegedly used the same vehicle each time.
The sheriff says after multiple search warrants were executed, evidence linking Goodwin to the robberies was found. Goodwin is now charged with four counts of aggravated robbery with a fifth count expected soon.
