MIAMISBURG — The fourth suspect in the armed robbery outside the Home Depot in Miamisburg is now in custody, Miamisburg police Sgt. Jeff Muncy said.
The fourth suspect was apprehended when he showed up for school today, the sergeant said.
All four suspects are 14 to 16 years old, he said.
The hunt for these four young men began after police received a call that a woman was robbed at gunpoint and knocked to the ground by the group just after 8 p.m. Sept. 5, after which they jumped into a Honda Odyssey and drove away.
No shots were fired, but the woman said one of the young men shook the gun at her.
The getaway minivan had been reported stolen, according to Moraine police.
Dayton police later encountered the minivan and chased it until the suspects abandoned the vehicle on West Third Street in Dayton.
Miamisburg police were able to get surveillance photos of the four suspects from the Home Depot security cameras, and asked for the public’s help to identify them on Friday.
They received numerous phone calls identifying the young men, according to Miamisburg Police Sgt. Jeff Muncy, after which they captured one and another turned himself in. The two suspects were able to verify the identity of the other two, and a third suspect turned himself in Friday night.
