2 Youngstown men indicted in separate robbery cases

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two Youngstown men who are accused of two separate robberies in late May were indicted Thursday by a Mahoning County grand jury.

Jamar Mitchell, 30, was indicted on one count each of aggravated robbery with a firearms specification, heroin possession and illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

Boardman police said Mitchell and several others were arguing in the parking lot of Vibra Hospital on South Avenue June 4. Police recognized Mitchell as the suspect in an armed robbery May 31 at the Shell gas station on Glenwood Avenue and Western Reserve Road. They said they recognized him from surveillance video, according to a police report.

The police report states that a man, later identified as Mitchell, went into the gas station just before 6:30 p.m. May 31, showed a gun and demanded cash.

Also indicted Thursday on a robbery charge was Randy Jamison, 39, who police said robbed the Huntington Bank in downtown Youngstown on May 29.

Jamison pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery in 2007 and in October, he was released from prison and placed on five years probation, according to court records.

Both men remain at the Mahoning County Jail and will be arraigned on the charges next week.
