Paragraph 9 reads: "Family members say Williamson has struggled with depression over a battle with cancer and he's taking several different medications."
Paragraph 2 reads: "The suspect is 67-years-old, and he's never been in trouble a day in his life, until now."
There are stunning new developments in the case of a man accused of robbing several women at gunpoint.
The suspect is 67-years-old, and he's never been in trouble a day in his life, until now.
A judge set Henry Williamson's bond at $500,000 for having a gun and running from police.
Williamson's family says this came out of nowhere.
"It had to have been something with his mental state. My son had a wrestling match this weekend; my dad was there to watch his grandson wrestle," says Marlon Williamson.
It's easy to understand why the family is so distraught. Williamson is 67-years-old and he worked as a reserve sheriff's deputy in Trumbull County for 20 years, but police say this past week, Williamson went on a crime spree.
He's accused of robbing a woman at gunpoint in a north Columbus parking lot Wednesday. Police say Williamson tried to escape in his getaway car, but lost control on Cooper Road.
Investigators say Williamson confessed to four armed robberies.
Marlon Williamson says, "It's just totally out of my dad's character. Everybody loves my dad. He's a caring, understanding person...never did anybody wrong. I don't understand it."
Family members say Williamson has struggled with depression over a battle with cancer and he's taking several different medications.
If he's responsible for a string of armed robberies, Williamson's son is sorry for the victims and just as sorry for his dad.
"I feel sorry for those people who went through that but this is not my dad's character, he is not that type of person," says Marlon Williamson.
Williamson is facing felony charges of kidnapping and armed robbery.
