Man arrested for Family Video robberies

Brewer

ELYRIA — An Elyria man was arrested for two robberies at Family Video on Broad Street.

Police said Jason Brewer, 36, walked into the store on two separate occasions and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. He was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of robbery.

Elyria Police Capt. Chris Costantino said the arrest was made due to “good police work.”

Costantino said he did not know if Brewer was a customer of Family Video, but he said Brewer told police he took the money because he was “down on his luck.”
