A Berea resident was indicted by a Madison grand jury last week in connection with an Aug. 4 armed robbery.
Adam L. Anglin, 24, of Burchwood Drive in Berea, was indicted on second-degree robbery and first-degree persistent felony offender charges.
The persistent felony charge enhances both charges to Class B felonies, punishable by a maximum of 20 years in prison. If convicted for both, Anglin could serve a maximum of 40 years in prison.
He was arrested after police investigated a report of an assault and theft around 5:15 p.m. Aug. 4, according to a release from Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock.
The officers met with a man in the 100 block of Rice Court who told them he had been hit in the head by Anglin, which caused him to loss consciousness, the release stated.
The man said Anglin stole his wallet, $200 and a cell phone.
Officers found Anglin at 8 p.m. on Boggs Lane near the Madison County Health Department. The release states they recovered $192 from him, and further investigation confirmed he was the suspect named in the robbery report.
Anglin remains in the Madison County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution. See Monday's Richmond Register for the conclusion of recent Madison County indictments.
