SPRINGFIELD, OH – Two people face aggravated robbery charges after allegedly stealing a Springfield man’s dog at gunpoint.
The theft was reported Jan. 24 at an apartment in the 500 block of High Street. The victim told Springfield officers a man and a woman entered his home when the man displayed a silver handgun with a wooden grip and demanded money. The victim said that when he went to retrieve his wallet, the male thief picked up the victim’s dog and put it inside his coat. He then took all of the victim’s money, his cell phone and charger before leaving with the woman on foot, according to an incident report.
The victim said he followed the two but lost them near the Nite Owl Bar.
On Jan. 28, the victim identified Marcus Dearmond Jr., 21, and Kiersten Ramey, 22, from a police photo array. Warrants were issued for the couple, and the two were arrested by Springfield police Friday.
Dearmond and Ramey both entered not guilty pleas during their arraignments Monday in Clark County Municipal Court. Judge Thomas Trempe set each of their bonds at $20,000.
As of Monday afternoon, Dearmond was still being held in the Clark County Jail, but Ramey was no longer listed as an inmate.
It is unclear if the victim’s dog was returned to him.
