2 adults, 2 juveniles under arrest following home invasion, chase
GREEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Two men wanted in connection with a home invasion and robbery in Green Township have been arrested after an Ohio police chase ended in Northern Kentucky.
Aaron Clower, 18, and 19-year-old Zachery Harp are each facing charges of felonious assault, theft and aggravated burglary, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
The two men join two juveniles in custody following a home invasion and robbery early Tuesday on Calmhaven Drive in Green Township, the sheriff’s office said.
Shortly after 12 a.m., the four suspects drove away from the home, but a sheriff’s deputy spotted their vehicle.
The deputy chased the suspects’ vehicle into Miami Township.
During the chase, the sheriff’s office says the suspects shot at the deputy. No one was hit by the gunfire.
At some point, the suspects ditched the vehicle and ran into a wooded area.
Then later in the morning, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says they got a call that the suspects might be inside a home on River Road in Cincinnati.
Law enforcement, including a SWAT team, responded to the home.
The sheriff’s office says, it turns out, no one was inside the River Road home.
The suspects were instead driving a stolen car out of Miami Township after they shot at the deputy 12 hours earlier, according to the sheriff’s office.
Kyla Woods with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office announced the two juveniles were in custody around 12:30 p.m. Those two have not been identified since they are under 18.
Around 2 p.m., the stolen vehicle with Clower and Harp inside was spotted near Colerain and Marshall, the sheriff’s office said.
The two refused to stop for police, and a chase ensued.
The chase went across the Ohio River and into Northern Kentucky, where it ended at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said.
Clower and Harp were arrested Tuesday and the following day when they appeared in Kenton County court, additional charges of wanton endangerment, fleeing and eluding police, and receiving stolen property were filed against them, according to court records.
Clower’s bond was set at $35,000, while Harp’s was set at $30,000, court documents show.
Additionally, a detainer warrant was issued for both suspects to face charges in Hamilton County in connection with the home invasion and shooting at officers, documents read.
