CINCINNATI - It was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Twenty-two-year-old Andrew McGarr was parked near the Glencrossing Shopping Center just after the Emery Federal Credit Union was robbed Thursday.
Cincinnati and Green Township police, as well as the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, were spreading out looking for the robber, a white male in his mid 20s to 30s, wearing a black hoodie and gloves.
The suspect was seen running on foot eastbound through the parking lot.
When officers came upon a suspicious black Chevy Cobalt, McGarr put it in gear and took off.
The chase raced through Price Hill, doubling back over the Western Hills viaduct several times, to Interstate 75 towards Kentucky. The sheriff and Cincinnati police broke off, but a Green Township officer continued the pursuit across the state line.
When McGarr reached Erlanger's jurisdiction, that city's police joined in. Finally, McGarr crashed the car he was driving into the entrance of the Wild Flavors plant on Dolwick Drive and was captured.
But something just didn't feel right to the officers on the scene. Detectives found none of the missing money in the vehicle.
But they say they did find drug paraphernalia, and discovered the car had been stolen.
McGarr was taken to the Kenton County Detention Center, where he is charged with fleeing and eluding, receiving stolen property, outstanding warrants, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
If extradited to Ohio, he could face further charges.
Meanwhile, the suspect in the Emery Credit Union robbery is still at large.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
