Findlay man gets 4 years for robberies

A Findlay man was sentenced to a prison term of four years after he pleaded guilty to robbery charges last week.

Nathan W. Hill, 28, was sentenced by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Kelbley to a total of four years in prison on two counts of robbery, one of which is a second-degree felony and the other a third-degree felony, according to court documents.

Hill had been indicted on the charges for attempting to rob Shell Gasoline, 247 S. Sandusky St., June 18, 2012, and also for robbing Circle K, 73 Melmore St., the same day.

At Shell Gasoline, a clerk had reported a man said he had a gun and wanted cash. The clerk refused to give the man anything and he then ran away on foot.

Sixteen minutes later, a clerk at Circle K reported a man came into the store and demanded money. The clerk gave him an undisclosed amount of cash and he then left. According to Tiffin police reports, the man didn’t make any threats or show a weapon during the robbery, and also provided the Circle K clerk with a name.

According to court documents, Hill also was ordered last week to pay $90 in restitution to Circle K.
