by George Hiotis on July 7, 2011

Zanesville Police have one man in custody and are searching for another man in connection with two incidents Thursday. Detective Sergeant Ric Roush says it started around 3:30 am at the Putnam Beer Dock. Roush says a suspect broke out the front window of the business and stole lottery tickets, beer and cigarettes. Detective Roush says then around 11:00 am the attendant at the North-end K-Mart Goodwill drop off facility was robbed by a suspect who matched the description of the suspect from the Beer Dock incident. Roush says around 12:30 pm officers located one of the suspects and a foot chase occurred in the Pine Street area where he was captured. Roush says a 36-year-old Zanesville man is in custody – and will be identified once he is formally charged. The search for the other suspect continues. There was one injury – the Goodwill attendant suffered a cut to the head  andwas taken to the hospital treated and released.
