Blue Ash Police have taken three burglary suspects into custody Wednesday at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Amanda Sumner, 32, Dustin Cole, 34, and Daniel Creech, 35, were all arrested on Wednesday.

"What we would like to get out to the community right now is if you have a hotel or any business... it wasn't just restricted to hotels," Sgt. Robert Gerhardt said. There are some Walmarts that may have been hit. The two male suspects in this case are from the Lawrencebrug area... so they could have hit anywhere in the 275 loop, and we have already linked them to at least one similar offense in Florence, KY."

Police said they were pocketing between $300 to $400 from vending machines a day. 

"It appears they tried a set of keys that they may have stolen from a business or company like a universal set, which did not work. They tried one crow bar and it looks like they went back and got another crow," Gerhardt said. 

Two of the suspects were found after police received a tip regarding their location. The third was arrested earlier Wednesday and taken into custody.

Cole was also wanted for a parole violation from Indiana. 

Police believe that the trio may be responsible for possibly thirty to fifty thefts from vending machines and other similar offenses. 

If you have any information regarding this case, contact the Blue Ash Police at 513-745-8555.
