Miami County Sheriff’s Office seeking armed robbers
Two males forced their way into a Hillsdale-area residence and tied up a 62-year old female July 30. The suspects branded a knife and demanded money.
The resident was unharmed, and after the robbers left, she called 9-1-1. She described the attackers Hispanic males.
As officers were dispatched to the scene, a Louisburg police officer observed a vehicle running a stoplight. The car sped away from the officer, who attempted to make a traffic stop. When the vehicle finally stopped, three Hispanic males fled from the car. One was taken into custody, but the other two, who match the description of the robbery, escaped near U.S. 69 Highway and 271st Street.
Police later responded to U.S. 69 Highway and 247th Street, where someone matching one of the robber’s descriptions was possibly spotted, but they were unable to locate a suspect.
Officers from Kansas Highway Patrol and Johnson County agencies assisted in the continuing manhunt.
