Mr. Greiser is in custody in the Marion County Jail for the crimes of Robbery I and Menacing. Mr. Greiser is scheduled to be arraigned today at 3:00 p.m., at the Circuit Court Annex. The Sheriff's Office would like to thank our residents for collaborating with the Sheriff's Office to improve safety within our community. Thanks to brave citizens the Sheriff's Office has arrested a murder and robbery suspect within 24 hours and none of this could have been accomplished without credible tips from our community.
On Saturday 09/24 around 2:00 a.m., a black, male adult, wearing Nike batting gloves and a gas mask entered the Center Market located at 237 N 2nd Street in Jefferson. The male brandished a handgun, took the clerk behind the counter and demanded money. The clerk complied with the man's orders who then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The male is described as 5'10" tall, thin, with light colored pants and black socks. Deputies are asking anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect pictured to please call Deputy Higgins at 503-932-0939
