A Jackson County man charged with robbing Family Dollar Store in Richmond on March 18 was indicted for the crime Thursday.

Steven A. Greer, 44, was charged with first-degree robbery by a Madison County grand jury, a charge that carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. Greer allegedly entered the dollar store on Main Street while clerk Phillip Romick was working.

“(Greer) approached the register where Romick was working, advised him he had a knife, showed it to him and demanded money,” said Richmond Police Sgt. Willard Reardon.

After allegedly taking $640 from the store, Greer fled toward the US Bank parking lot and Romick notified police. Nearly a month later, Reardon said police received a call from a Jackson County Constable Arvin Webb, who had responded to a domestic call involving Greer. Reardon said during the course of interviews with witnesses, Greer was implicated in the robbery.

“Due to statements and information from witnesses, we were able to obtain enough information to obtain an arrest warrant,” Reardon said.

Greer is scheduled for arraignment on the charge Thursday, Sept. 7, at 11:50 a.m. in Madison Circuit Court.

The Madison Commonwealth's Attorney’s office returned a criminal information against Thomas Hickle, 31. Hickle is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment. Commonwealth’s Attorney David Smith said an information is a charge the prosecutor brings as opposed to the grand jury. If convicted, Hickle could serve one to five years in prison.
