A Highland County Grand Jury handed down a three-count indictment Tuesday against a Hillsboro woman charged in connection with a robbery at Larry’s Party Shop in Hillsboro.

Faith Scott, 19, of Hillsboro, has been charged with three felonies: complicity to aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony; conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, a second-degree felony; and receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony.



As previously reported by The Highland County Press, a male entered the Muntz Street business before 8:51 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30 and brandished a weapon at the store’s two employees. Hillsboro Police Sgt. Shawn Kelley said the suspect demanded money from the store’s cash drawer and fled on foot with an unspecified amount of cash.

In addition to Scott, two juveniles have been charged in the case. The 17-year-old and 16-year-old have each been charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony. The State of Ohio is seeking “discretionary bindover” of the 17-year-old.

Highland County Juvenile Court Judge Kevin Greer said during a Feb. 13 hearing that a probable cause hearing and an amenability hearing will need to be scheduled, along with a mental and physical evaluation for the 17-year-old, before he will determine whether the juvenile should be tried as an adult.

A probable cause hearing for the 17-year-old is currently scheduled for March 15.

The 16-year-old’s case is scheduled for a half-day trial on April 17.

Scott remains incarcerated in the Highland County Justice Center, while the juveniles are in the Juvenile Detention Center in Chillicothe.
