A 70-year-old Hinckley Township man is accused of robbing a bank and then leading police on a car chase through several Medina communities.
Hugh Crouch was arrested after he bailed out of his car near a home in Montville Township, according to Brunswick police.
He is accused of robbing a Huntington Bank branch on Center Road in Brunswick about 1:15 p.n. Tuesday. Authorities said he did not use a gun while demanding cash from a teller.
After the robbery, officers from Brunswick, Brunswick Hills, Medina, Medina Township, Montville, the Medina County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio Highway Patrol combined forces to apprehend the suspect as he fled the bank in a Chevrolet pickup truck.
The 15-minute chase, which reached speeds of 70 mph, went from Brunswick to a home on East Smith Road in Montville, where Crouch exited his vehicle and tried to run, police said. He was caught after a short foot chase. No one was injured.
