A New Castle man is in the Trumbull County Jail, accused of robbing a Brookfield Township convenience store.

Forty-five-year-old James Hill told a detective that it wasn’t him who stole $300 from  Lil’ Macs Circle K store on Irvine Avenue.

When an officer showed him a surveillance picture from the October 28th robbery, Hill said he didn’t know about the crime and asked for his lawyer.

Hill was booked into the county jail and faces a charge of aggravated robbery in Eastern District Court.
