Blake A. Johnson, 35, will be arraigned Tuesday for an aggravated robbery charge in connection to a May 22 incident, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.

That is the same day of two robberies reported at Vapor Haus at 617 Watervliet Ave. and Zip Thru Beer & Wine, 1404 Patterson Road in Dayton. However, it is unclear for which crime Johnson is facing charges.

Dayton police said Johnson also was a suspect in an earlier robbery at UDF at 1666 Woodman Drive in Dayton.

Johnson remains in the Montgomery County Jail, where he’s been held since his May 23 arrest.
