The neighbors of Buckeye Donuts campus location are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual who robbed the store at gunpoint Thursday morning at 4:50 a.m.

Bars Threes Above High, Fours On High, Leo’s on the Alley, Oldfield’s North Fourth Tavern, and law firm Hastie Legal have pooled together $1,000 for the reward. 

“We may be a large campus, but we’re a tight-knit community that sticks together when things go bad. We won’t sit by silently and let this happen in our backyard!” posted Threes Above High, in a Twitter statement regarding the reward.

A grateful Buckeye Donuts put out their own statement via social media: 

According to the police report, a man came into Buckeye Donuts in the predawn hours, took out a gun, and demanded the money from the store’s register. He then fled northbound on foot.


A manager has turned over video evidence related to the robbery to Columbus Police. 

Buckeye Donuts remains open, and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Columbus Division of Police at 614-645-4545.
