Fort Wayne, Ind. – On Tuesday, September 25, 2012, at approximately 8:14 a.m. officers with the City of Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the CVS Pharmacy at 6220 St. Joe Center Road reference a report of an armed robbery. The perpetrator, armed with a handgun, demanded Opana from the pharmacy employee and then fled the scene in a vehicle. Within minutes, an off-duty Fort Wayne Police Officer located the suspect vehicle on Wheelock Road and a vehicle pursuit ensued. During the course of the nearly twelve-minute vehicle pursuit, officers with the Allen County Sheriff Department had deployed a tire-deflation device (Stop-Sticks) along the anticipated escape route of the fleeing suspect vehicle. The suspect vehicle, a black Ford F-150, continued to flee with deflated tires and came to a final stop in the area of 14800 Parent Road, Allen County. The driver/robbery suspect was taken into custody by city police units at that time, and without incident. There were no reported collisions during the pursuit and no injuries.
This incident remains under investigation with the City of Fort Wayne Police Department, and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
