Three local men arrested on robbery charges

Three local men were arrested Wednesday in connection to two armed robberies.

Jason Johnson, 30, was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery for robbing Citizen’s Bank in Nelsonville in September and Jewell’s Carry-Out in Glouster in October.

Johnson admitted to his involvement in the bank robbery as part of a deal with police, Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said.

Anthony Carey, 32, and Timothy Orsborne, 34, were each charged with one count of complicity to commit aggravated robbery in connection with the Jewell’s Carry-Out robbery.

All three men are being held on bond at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. Blackburn said their cases will go to the grand jury Nov. 8.
