LIBERTY TWP. (FOX19) - Two men who robbed the Batteries Plus in Liberty Township at gunpoint on Tuesday have been arrested. Police believe these men are linked to multiple aggravated robberies within Butler County since October 2010.
The owner of the Batteries Plus told police two men entered the store, one of which was wearing a mask and holding a gun. One of the suspects demanded money. The robbery suspects then took the victim outside where the deposit bag was taken from his car. The suspects locked the victim out of the store and took off in a vehicle with the money.
A witness was able to get a license plate number from the suspect's car and gave it to the Butler County Sheriff's Office. Bryan Freeze, 40, was taken into custody several hours later in Middletown, Ohio. After further investigation, Wesley Moore, 39, was arrested in Columbus, Ohio.
Freeze and Moore have been charged with aggravated robbery, a first degree felony.
