CANTON — A man convicted of robbing a local convenience store to get beer three years ago is accused of returning to the store Thursday night, grabbing two 12-packs of Budweiser and walking out without paying for them, according to Stark County Jail records.

Julian C. Ducksworth, 34, of the 300 block of Warner Road SE, was arrested at 6:11 p.m. Thursday near the Circle K store at 1212 12th St. NW, knowing that he wasn’t permitted on the property, the jail records show.

He was jailed on charges of criminal trespassing, a parole violation and two counts of theft, one of which is a warrant.

Ducksworth had just been released from prison Aug. 21 after serving time for robbery, according to Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction records.

A Canton Repository article dated Sept. 5, 2015, detailed authorities’ allegations that Ducksworth pushed someone into locked doors while trying to steal beer from the Circle K store. He was charged with robbery. The article stated that he had just been released from jail on a theft charge.

Court records show he went to prison for several break-ins in 2012, 2010 and 2009, and in 2003 for having weapons under disability and cocaine possession.

Ducksworth remained in the jail Saturday, held without bond pending court hearings.
