More trouble for accused cash store robber

Keeping with a trend exemplified by a young couple accused of robbing cash stores to get money for OxyContin, the young man accused of a recent string of robberies is also accused of selling drugs.

Daniel I. Neace, 19, is charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance (ecstasy) after a confidential informant set him up back in April, according to a probable cause affdavit.

Neace and two friends were arrested after a robbery at the Check into Cash at 555 E. Francis last month. Police think the men may be responsible for a three robberies at local pizza joints. Read about that here.

Neace is to be arraigned today on the ecstasy charges, which relate to two sales he's accused of brokering with a police informant "attempting to work off criminal charges in hope of receiving favorable prosecutorial consideration," according to a probable cause affidavit.

The case is similar to a string of cash store robberies that ended with the arrest of a young couple in February. 

Police say Zachary Allen was involved in the OxyContin trade when he was allegedly knocking off cash stores. 

A young man accused of driving him to one of the robberies was also charged with selling ecstasy. Read about that here.
