A local man has been identified as the suspect who robbed Firelands Federal Credit Union on Saturday morning.

Robert Lee Jackson Jr., 52, of Monroeville, is wanted on a second-degree felony robbery warrant.

Monroeville Police Chief Gary Lyons said prosecutors with the Norwalk Law Director’s Office authorized the warrant Sunday. “We’re looking for him,” Lyons said.

“He got out of prison about a year ago (for) kidnapping and robbery. He has a history of violence and theft and robbery,” the chief said.

Jackson has brown hair and green eyes. He is 5 feet 11 inches and weighs about 235 pounds.

Anyone with information about Jackson’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the Monroeville Police Department at (419) 265-2345.

They also forgot to mention child molester glasses and he does have a sense of humor as he enjoys placing chicklets under his top lip.

If you look close at his white shirt collar its ruffled as if someone grabed him up prior to the picture

This dude sure looks a bit familiar. Looks like the guy that hung around J/V Brant, the thief from Greenwich/Willard. Except maybe that guy was a little bit rounder with less teeth.
Nice to see Monroeville making headlines again. Kids egging and this. I wish we'd construct us a white painted brick-o-block wall for mug pics of our home town brothers and sisters and kids.

If one knew how to survive in Appalachia, there is a very good chance that you'd never be found alive.

I wonder if he was the one who robbed Sunrise fuel station today, every Ford truck in the county is being stopped! Scanner is going crazy with registrations on every Ford TRUCK!

Now the sheriff says the suspect in the Norwalk robbery is likely Jackson. Monroeville is mainly traffic cops, the Kid Cops in Norwalk seem to be mainly for traffic anymore and all the State Patrols with their psychic powers that can spot drugs in cars going by them at 70 mph, throw in the Herion and Erie County Sheriff departments and no one has found him yet? And he's been in a 10 mile radius on Rt.20 for 3 days. What's going on? Will they catch him or will he kill himself first?

why would he kill himself.... seriously look at the picture.. if the guy shaved, grew his hair out, lost the glasses, he would blend into society pretty well... not locally of course though

Kinda looks like you Swiss.
