An Oak Harbor man faces eight years in prison after pleading guilty to a felony charge of aggravated burglary and robbery.

Trevor Boss, 31, will be sentenced in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court at 9:30 a.m. May 27, for waving a firearm during a March robbery of Mickey’s Smoke Shop in Port Clinton and stealing money at the Dollar General Store in Oak Harbor in December.

Detective Sgt. Corbin Carpenter, of the Port Clinton Police Department, said Boss admitted to both robberies when questioned by police. Boss told police he did not use a gun during the robbery in Oak Harbor.

According to Carpenter, Boss gave a Dollar General employee a note demanding money during the robbery Dec. 21.

Assistant Ottawa County prosecutor Joe Gerber said Boss faced two felony charges, one being aggravated robbery, a first-degree; and the second charge, a third-degree felony.

“He (Boss) pleaded to a felony 2, which included both charges. He faces eights years,” Gerber said.

Had Boss went to trial and been convicted, Gerber said he would have faced up to 14 years if convicted on both charges as a first-time robbery offender.

Port Clinton police worked with the Ottawa County Drug Task Force to locate Boss after suspecting the robberies were connected after vehicle descriptions and witness statements.
