VAN WERT — The man Delphos City Police investigators believe is one of the two males involved in a home-invasion-style robbery on July 10 appeared for his preliminary hearing in Van Wert Municipal Court Thursday.
Andrew J. Miller, 27, of Fort Jennings waived his right to the hearing so his case will now be sent to the Common Plea’s Court for review by the next session of the Van Wert County Grand Jury next week.
He faces a charge of robbery, a felony of the second degree.
Investigators say Miller is one of the two men that entered into a home in the 400 block of South Canal Street in Delphos on the evening of July 10. A Delphos man was assaulted during the commission of a theft offense from the home. He was later treated and released from a local hospital.
The two masked men fled the scene on foot after the robbery.
The victims reported the theft of a television, cash, wallets, cell phones and other personal property to police officers that had been called to the scene.
The Van Wert County Grand Jury will convene next week to hear the case.
Judge Jill Leatherman continued Millers’ cash bond at $100,000 cash. He is currently being held in the Van Wert County Jail.
