Man accused of robbing Saline Domino's held on $100,000 bond
A 27-year-old man accused of holding up a Domino’s pizza store in Saline Monday afternoon was arraigned on a charge of armed robbery and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Robert Neibler, of Tecumseh, is charged with one count each of armed robbery, larceny of money and threatening an individual at the store. Although Saline police requested no bond, Neibler was given a $100,000 bond during his arraignment.
“We’ve seen a recent spike in crimes that have ties to prescription and non-prescription drug abuse,” said Saline Detective Don Lupi in a statement. “This is yet another unfortunate event that has occurred from possible drug dependency.”
Neibler is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary exam at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 31. He will be represented by the Washtenaw County Public Defender’s Office.
Neibler said during his arraignment that he is single and has no children. He has previously been convicted of breaking and entering with intent to commit a crime in Mason County in 2002 and Kalkaska County in 2004. He was served probation in both of those cases.
He was convicted of uttering and publishing in Kalkaska County in 2006 and served more than four years in prison. He was released from prison in late March.
If convicted of armed robbery, Neibler faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
