A preliminary hearing is set for tomorrow for the man accused of robbing the Tuppers Plains branch of the Farmers Bank two-weeks ago.

Chad Rennicker, 25, of Ripley, WV, was arrested three days after the robbery and waived extradition and was returned to Meigs County.

Following the robbery, deputies say Rennicker took off with his girlfriend, Michaela Fritz, in her dad's stolen car.

Deputies say money from the robbery, along with items they bought, were found in that apartment.

Rennicker is being held in Washington County Jail pending $500,000 bond.

He is charged with six counts of kidnapping and one count of aggravated robbery – all connected to the bank robbery.

Fritz was charged with aiding and abetting Rennicker.

Rennicker was also wanted in Belmont County for six other robberies.
