BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A man wanted for aggravated robbery charges stemming from the March 25th robbery of First Financial Bank in Seven Mile, and a suspect in several other recent bank robberies in Hamilton County, has been caught.

Ronald E. Loehr of Hamilton was arrested around 11 a.m. Thursday morning in New Jersey. Loehr was known to have contacts in New Jersey, and Sheriff's Investigators has believed that was his destination when he reportedly fled Ohio after the March 25th robbery.

Loehr was immediately taken into custody without incident, and taken to the New Burlington Police Department. During the arrest process, it was discovered Loehr also could be facing some other, local New Jersey charges, and authorities are in the process of sorting out those details. He will remain in custody in New Jersey until their charges and the extradition to Ohio process is completed.
