Police are charging Michael J. Ellenis, 22, of the 1300 block of Woodledge Drive, Austintown, with aggravated robbery after an incident at 7:08 p.m. Sunday at Handel’s ice cream shop on Route 422. He is in the city jail.

Police issued an alert, and Austintown Police Department stopped Ellenis’ vehicle about 45 minutes later in the vicinity of Interstate 80.

What a useless idiot. A Handel’s? Really? Can't make this stuff up I guess.

"A preliminary report filed by Niles Police states the robber got away with $50 to $80 in cash."


Armed robbery with a $80. haul that will cost many hundreds of dollars in fines and attorney fees along with prison time is not being very bright . Does alcohol and drugs kill brain cells ? You Bet ! Michael J. Ellenis is living proof .

What do you get if you divide the circumference of a bowl of ice cream by its diameter? Pi a'la mode

Taking the money and leaving the chocolate pecan behind is like robbing the Louvre and leaving the Mona Lisa behind.
