Alan Sipple was arrested at his residence around 11:00 this morning without incident. He was charged with contaminating substance for human consumption or use.

The female victim was treated at a local hospital.

Frank A. Robinson, Jr., was taken into custody at his girlfriend's apartment on Kimlyn Circle around 11:30am this morning. Robinson is wanted for aggravated robbery. The charges stem from an incident back on April 19th, 2009 on Ley Dr. where Robinson and several others robbed a male at gunpoint for $500.00.

Both, Sipple and Robinson were booked into the Summit County jail.
