Defendant’s bond set
WARREN — Bond was set at $1 million Tuesday for Timothy R. Anderson, 21, of Palmyra Road, charged with the June 16 armed robbery of Lincoln Elementary on Atlantic Street.
Anderson appeared before Judge Andrew Logan in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court and pleaded innocent to charges of aggravated robbery with a gun specification and two counts of felonious assault with a gun specification. If convicted, he could face 29 years in prison.
He is accused of stealing $11,180 in tuition money from the school. The felonious assault charges stem from threatening two employees with a gun while taking the money. Anderson was returned to Trumbull County recently after he was arrested June 24 outside an apartment complex in Henderson, Nev., near Las Vegas.
