An Austin man was arrested on Wednesday, January 14, and charged with the December 16 robbery of D&M Grocery on the north side of that community.
Zach “Zachie” White, 24, was taken into custody by Austin police and transported to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg. What apparently made the case against White was his appearance in videos made by security cameras in a couple of other businesses. In each of the videos, recorded on December 16, White was wearing what appeared to be the same clothing described as being worn by the robber by a clerk at the small family-operated grocery. A clerk at one of those other stores also identified the man as White.
The suspect is charged with one count of robbery, a Class C felony. When he appeared for an initial hearing in Scott Circuit Court on January 15, a not guilty plea was entered for him. White was assigned a jury trial date of June 29.
Prosecutor Jason Mount also filed a petition for detainer on behalf of the State of Indiana. White will be held for 15 days without bail. Thereafter, bail will be set at $100,000 corporate surety or full cash.
