LISBON - A Salem man nicknamed "Spider-Man" and accused of stealing nearly $600 from a safe at the Guilford Lake Grille on Tuesday night is in custody charged with burglary.
According to the Columbiana County Sheriff's Department, Roy Paparodis reported Wednesday having a conversation with the man at the bar, just before 9 p.m., Tuesday. The man, who had spider and web tattoos on his arms and shoulders, reportedly was under the influence of some type of drug.
Shortly after 9 p.m., the man reportedly excused himself to go to the restroom. The next day, finding the safe had been ransacked, the video system was checked. It showed the man, Detective Jeff Haugh identified as Robert L. Bembry, 48, Salem, opening the unlocked safe and removing money, stuffing it into his wasteband.
Bembry was out on bond from Columbiana County Common Pleas Court, facing sentencing for charges of burglary and safecracking, in an unrelated matter. Deputies charged him with burglary in this case.
