DAYTON AREA MAN SENTENCED TO FIFTEEN YEARS
April 4, 2017
Scioto County Court of Common Pleas Judge Leonard Holzapfel, sitting by assignment, today sentenced a Dayton area man to fifteen years imprisonment on multiple charges. Toby Lynn Lamb, II, 29, of West Carrolton, Ohio, was convicted by a Scioto County jury of for Aggravated Robbery, F1, with a Firearm Specification, and Failure to Comply with an Order or Signal of a Police Officer, F3. The jury deliberated for approximately two hours after hearing one and a half days of testimony.
Lamb was indicted for the October 16, 2015 Armed Robbery of the Super Eight Hotel in Rosemount and a subsequent car chase. At approximately 5:00AM, Lamb donned a covering for his face, plastic gloves and a loaded semi-automatic firearm and entered the hotel, demanding that the clerk give him money from the safe. The clerk was able to get away from Lamb and Lamb then exited the hotel. Scioto County Sheriff’s Officers were quickly dispatched to the crime scene and a “BOLO” was put out describing the suspect.
The Sheriff’s office, with mutual assistance from New Boston Police Department and the Ohio Highway Patrol, was able to locate the getaway vehicle. A high speed chase ensued in which one suspect bailed from the car and was apprehended. Lamb remained in the car and proceeded to lead police on a high speed chase through Rubyville, which ultimately ended with the Defendant wrecking the vehicle and escaping into the woods.
Through a strong investigation from the Sheriff’s Office, evidence was collected from witnesses and the crash scene that ultimately led to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of Lamb. “I want to thank the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office and assisting agencies for their excellent efforts in investigating and ultimately bringing Mr. Lamb to justice,” said Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Shane Tieman who represented the State of Ohio. Mr. Lamb was represented at trial by attorney Gene Meadows.
