Hamilton SWAT standoff ends; crime spree suspect in custody

by Roger Seay - email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - It was the second time that day that Dennis Ray Cain was shot at on Thursday that brought him into custody. 

The Hamilton Police Department called out their SWAT team last night when Cain, 39, was holed up in a house in the 300 block of North 6th Street.  After repeated attempts to negotiate failed, the SWAT Team released tear gas into the home.

The tear gas worked at dislodging Cain, but he still was not ready to give up and was subdued only after being struck with a beanbag round fired from a shotgun.

This was the second time Cain was shot at during the day. Luckily for him, the earlier shot, fired from a .380 caliber handgun by the clerk at Discount Tobacco, missed.

Cain is facing two counts of aggravated robbery for holding up Discount Tobacco, and Dablets Market Thursday afternoon. Cain has also been charged with a single count of robbery stemming from the robbery of Tom's Cigar Store, 135 Main Street, on March 17th at 3:37 PM.

Also charged is Morningstarr Scott, 29, a female acquaintance of Cain, who has been charged with Obstructing Justice for misleading officers during the robbery investigations.

 Chief Ferdelman stated, "I am proud of the work by all the officers involved. This was an excellent collaborative effort between the Police Department's Patrol Division, Investigation Section, and SWAT Team, and I want to extend our thanks to all the citizens whose tips help lead to these arrests."
