Police Seek Robber Targeting United Dairy Farmers and Walmart

COLUMBUS (Ken Hines/Kate Liebers) -- An allegedly armed gunman who robbed two businesses Wednesday morning is still at large. 

Police are searching for Jason Ladwig, 37, who is suspected of robbing a United Dairy Farmers at Sunbury and Morse roads in Northeast Columbus and Walmart on East Main Street in Whitehall.

One clerks said the robber gave them the scare of her life.

"I am a nervous wreck. A nervous wreck. Never in my life have I experienced anything like this, but it happened to me." said Floree Smith, a Walmart employee.

Smith said the suspect, dressed in a Tim Horton's uniformed, threatened to shoot her if she didn't hand over cash.

Investigators believe Ladwig robbed the United Dairy Farmers around 6 a.m., about an hour before targeting the Walmart. 

In both incidences, Ladwig told employees he had a gun and demanded money in both incidences, according to police. No one was injured.

Detectives were still looking for Ladwig's car by late afternoon. Police said he was driving a silver 2004 Chevy Malibu with the license number EQG-2673.

Anyone with information about the crimes is encouraged to contact the Columbus Division of Police at 614-645-4545.
