TARTA’s illegal victim zone signs didn't stop this ''armed'' criminal

TARTA learns what Dairy Mart now knows...criminals don't care about weapons prohibitions. TARTA got a bonus - they learned that if all the firearms in the world magically disappeared, criminals would simply switch to items as innocent as a broomstick.

Man arrested in robbery of East Toledo carryout

A man who, police say, menaced a carryout clerk with a broomstick during a robbery of an East Toledo carryout Friday was arrested downtown last night by police after he refused to get off a TARTA bus.

Christopher Feemster, 28, of 1711 Nevada Ave., was charged with robbery and disorderly conduct.

A police crew recognized the man last night at a Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority stop near Jackson Boulevard and St. Clair Street as a suspect in Friday's robbery of Wally's Carry Out, 561 East Broadway. The robber fled with a large amount of cash.

TARTA personnel called police about 8:30 last night, asking for help with a man refusing to get off a bus. Mr. Feemster was taken into custody and booked at the Lucas County jail.
