TROY, Ohio — A Piqua woman, 32 -year-old Jennifer Hiser was arraigned Monday morning in Miami County Municipal Court on 10 charges to include fleeing, speeding and failure to comply to a lawful order of a police officer.
She was involved in a pursuit that started early Sunday morning in the 600 block of North Market Street in Troy and ended minutes later in Piqua at Piqua-Troy Road and Statler Road after police "spiked" the tires of her speeding pick-up truck.
Hiser was booked into the Miami County Jail in Troy, but hours later a magistrate released her on her own recognizance. The same magistrate, Gary Zuhl, Monday morning continued her bond at her arraignment.

BUTLER TWP. — UPDATE @ 5:05 p.m. (April 25): Police have released surveillance video that shows the robbery at the Verizon store on Miller Lane.
INITIAL REPORT (April 17)
Police are looking for as many as five males who discharged at least one firearm when they robbed a person of a purse and a cell phone at the Verizon store on Miller Lane.
The robbery was reported just after 6 p.m. at the store at 7070 Miller Lane. At least one shot was fired inside the showroom.
No one was injured, Butler Twp. Detective Kevin Sink said.
The car believed to have been used in the armed robbery, reportedly a blue Hyundai Elantra, was located Tuesday evening in the 1500 block of Weaver Street in Dayton.
Jim, a contractor from Tennessee, said he and a co-worker were in a company van outside the store when a car pulled up.
Three males came runing out and jumped in the car, Jim said, noting that seconds later a fourth male -- who had a dark or black handgun -- came out. He was wearing a hoodie and a white mask, as they all were. He was holding the firearm down at his side, pointed downward.

Jim said his co-worker was able to jot down the license plate of the getaway car. Jim said he was getting in position to snap a cell phone photo of the car when he saw the firearm and decided to crouch behind the van.
"I don't want to get shot," he said. "I'm too close to retirement."
The robbers looked to be young men in their 20s, Jim said, noting that they dropped a backpack and a blue Walmart bag outside the Verizon store.
"My life is worth more than a picture," he said. "I'm just glad nobody got hurt."

WARREN COUNTY — David Randall King, 58, was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison with parole eligibility after 15 years in a child rape case where he was the caretaker.
King, of Pleasant Plain, in the Warren County village of Harlan Twp., was convicted by a county jury in March on two counts of rape and one count of gross sexual imposition. Both are felonies.
County Prosecutor David Fornshell, in a prepared statement released Tuesday afternoon, said that from January 2014 to October 2015, King sexually assaulted a (then) 5- to 6-year-old girl he was a caretaker of at the time.
After the assaults, he discouraged the child from telling anyone and told her she "wasn't brave enough to tell anyone."
Fornshell said the crimes came to light in May 2016 when the child told her foster parents about the assaults. They, in turn, reported the crimes to Warren County Children Services.
"We often hear the word 'courage' overused when describing everyday actions. In this case, a nine year-old girl sat in a courtroom in front of a judge, 12 jurors, the attorneys, and everyone else in that audience, with her rapist looking right at her, and described in exact detail what he did to her,” Fornshell said in the statement.
“THAT is courage," he said.
