A New Richmond resident is being held on a $250,000 bond after he allegedly robbed the New Richmond BP Express gas station and held the clerk at knife point Dec. 4.

Dakota “Cody” Boehm, 23, allegedly entered the gas station at about 11:22 p.m. wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, and gym shoes, and masked with a scarf. The robber then threatened the clerk with a 12-inch dagger before making off with $700 cash.

According to New Richmond Police Chief Randy Harvey, the department received valuable information which led them to Boehm, who lives on Front Street.

When police sought Boehm for questioning they found him incarcerated at the Brown County Adult Detention Center on a mayor’s court bench warrant.

Chief Harvey said when Boehm was interview by his department the suspect confessed to the robbery and was subsequently transferred to the Clermont County Jail.

Boehm has been charged with aggravated robbery, theft, and kidnapping. The kidnapping charge was filed because he allegedly restrained the clerk at knife point.

The New Richmond man pleaded guilty to a charge of theft of less than $500 in Feb. 2009 and has had multiple parole violation charges since. He was also convicted of two counts of receiving stolen property in 2008.
