A man accused of robbing a bank in Meigs County has been returned to Ohio to face charges four years after the crime, the sheriff’s department said.
Sean Mitchell, 44, of Athens, Ohio, is accused of robbing the Tuppers Plains Branch of the Farmers Bank on Sept. 1, 2009.
Mitchell was arrested in November 2009 of robbing a bank in Ocean Springs, Miss.
Investigators said he confessed to the Tuppers Plains robbery after he was arrested in Mississippi. Although he was indicted in December 2009 for the Meigs Conty bank robbery, he fought extradition, and it was nearly four years before he could be extradicted back to Meigs County.
Mitchell is now lodged at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
