Couple arrested after four-county search


A married Columbus couple were arrested early Tuesday on charges of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and criminal gang activity following a multi-agency search that covered more than 50 locations in four counties.

The apprehension of Christina Dawn Ricks, 30, and William C. “Shorty Mack” Ricks, 39, was announced in a Tuesday afternoon press release by Edinburgh Police Chief David Mann.

Area police agencies have been working to connect two Jan. 19 crimes: the early morning burglary of Myers Grocery Store in Ogilville, and the armed robbery of the Bonkerz Sunoco convenience store off Interstate 65 in Edinburgh later that evening.

Mann said surveillance video confirms the same white, late-1990s Ford Explorer was used in both the burglary and armed robbery.
