UPDATE: Willie Holland’s bail has been set at $200,000 Friday after police and prosecutors asked the judge to set a high bail so that Holland would remain in jail until the trial.
Police have been searching for a man that has robbed about 10 gas stations in Columbus, Grove City and Blendon Township in less than two weeks. Thursday afternoon, Willie Holland was arrested by SWAT officers around 4 p.m. as a suspect for those robberies.[symple_button url=”http://www.nbc4i.com/story/26572695/robbery-suspected-arrested-by-cpd-swat” color=”red” button_target=”_blank”]More at NBC4[/symple_button]
