Suspect in bank robbery caught

Staff report

TIPP CITY — Tipp City Police are reporting the bank robbery suspect who threatened a teller with a “bottle of COVID-19” has been arrested by a sheriff’s office in Florida.

According to the arrest report, a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled Daquan Rashaad Crenshaw over for speeding in Lake City, Fla. on Tuesday.

The report states that the deputy saw that Crenshaw had an active warrant from Ohio and proceeded to arrest him. According to the report, while enroute to the jail, Crenshaw “mentioned to me the steps in which he took during the robbery,” without the deputy questioning him about the robbery.

Evidence from the vehicle, which was searched after small particles of marijuana were seen on the seat and floor of the vehicle, was collected to be returned with Crenshaw, who was already on federal probation, when he is extradited back to Ohio.

Police said the suspect was charged with one count of aggravated robbery after the Greenville Federal Bank in Tipp City was robbed on Oct. 23. Authorities believe he is the only person involved with the robbery.
