Davonta Edward Mitchell, 30, of Paducah, Kentucky was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, kidnapping, grand theft auto, and theft.

Officers responded to a call at a grocery store along U.S. 52 in Stout, Ohio. In a press release, the Sheriff’s Office said the caller told them the man was pointing a gun at the clerk and demanding money.

Sheriff Thoroughman said that deputies and detectives responded and got a description of the suspect’s vehicle. According to the Sheriff, the suspect was driving a vehicle they believed to be stolen.
