BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - Three suspects are in custody this morning after one of them gave two police agencies the slip, leading to a manhunt.
Officers found the handcuffed teen hiding in an apartment about 5 a.m. in the 4500 block of Paddock Road, said St. Bernard Police Lt. Bill Ungruhe.
The manhunt began after police said they responded to a 3:17 a.m. burglary report in the 6800 block of East Ross Avenue. Laptops and religious wine were stolen from the home of a deacon at St. Clement Church.
The victims saw the burglars and chased them out of their home.
Two male teen suspects fled, but police spotted them entering a store near the the intersection of Paddock Road and Tennessee Avenue.
They pulled the juveniles who are 15 and 17 out of the store and handcuffed one without incident. While placing the second suspect under arrest, police spotted his gun. A scuffle ensued.
Police knocked the teen down, grabbed the weapon and placed him under arrest without further incident, but the first suspect used that as an opportunity to run off.
The teen fled to apartments nearby.
At first, police thought he also was armed with a gun and hiding behind a building. A search dog was summoned to scour the area.
The animal tracked the suspect to an apartment inside by 5 a.m. When officers found the teen, he was still wearing the handcuffs but trying to pry them off.
The teens were charged with burglary and resisting arrest. Officers are looking into firearm charges.
Police arrested a third suspect, the resident of the apartment. He faces a charge of misconduct at an emergency.
The stolen items were found in bushes outside.
