A man has been charged in Athens County Municipal Court with aggravated robbery after allegedly brandishing a knife while trying to steal Slim Jims. Corey Brown, 20, had his initial court appearance Monday via video from Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. Assigned Judge William Grim set bond at $25,000 and scheduled a preliminary hearing for next Monday. The felony charge lists Brown's address as "homeless," although various documents list an address of Nelsonville or Liars Corner Road, Athens.
