LISBON — A North Benton man who tried to rob the Lucky Dog Skills Games facility in Sebring last fall was ordered to prison for two years. Rudy Pierce II, 49, appeared for sentencing Monday in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court for robbery, a third-degree felony count. He received credit for five days already served in the county jail and was ordered to make restitution to the Knox Township business. Court documents said Pierce entered the facility on Oct. 24, 2007 and approached the clerk from behind with his hand in his coat gesturing as though he had a weapon, telling her to give him all the money and put her hands up. According to an affidavit by a Sheriff’s Office deputy, the clerk sprayed him with mace and they both fled the store. The clerk watched him enter the passenger side of a pickup in Highland Park cemetery, which is where he was located by authorities. The affidavit said he told his nephew he was going to rob the business. Also in Common Pleas Court: ¯ Jacqueline Myers-Sims, 45, of 1246 Lisbon St., East Liverpool, was sentenced to two years in prison for operating a vehicle intoxicated, a third-degree felony. The sentence includes a mandatory 120-day period of incarceration. She was also fined $1,000 and her driver’s license was suspended for 99 years. She received credit for five days already served in jail. Documents said Myers-Sims was caught driving drunk on May 18, 2007 on U.S. Route 30 in Center Township, with at least seven prior convictions or guilty pleas to OVI on her record over the past 20 years. ¯ Thomas Snider, 44, whose last known address was 1031 Edgewood St., East Liverpool, was sentenced to 90 days in the county jail for theft, a fifth-degree felony. After the 90 days, he will be placed on probation for five years. He was originally charged with robbery, a second-degree felony, but pled guilty in June to a reduced charge of theft. Documents said he and a co-defendant robbed Gilkinson’s Drive Thru on Dresden Avenue in East Liverpool on March 21, 2003. The co-defendant reportedly made several employees of the store get over a desk in the office, demanded money and made statements leading others to believe she had a gun. Documents said Snider and the co-defendant had a physical confrontation with a male employee of the store, resulting in the employee being tackled and struck in the mouth. ¯ Nicholas Manijak, 19, of 28 W. Park Ave., Columbiana, pled guilty to theft and two counts of receiving stolen property, both fourth-degree felonies, and one count of resisting arrest, a first-degree misdemeanor, with sentencing set for Oct. 31. Documents said Manijak stole a Chevy Blazer belonging to David Clow on Sept. 18 and was caught in Columbiana in possession of two stolen vehicles on Sept. 20, with a Chevy S-10 belonging to Jeremy McElroy and a Ford Ranger belonging to Charles Sienerth. He also resisted arrest on Sept. 20, pushing a Columbiana Police officer to the ground.
