CHEVIOT, Ohio – A suspected armed home invasion in Cheviot turned out to be a petty robbery, according to police.
Police initially received a report of two armed men breaking into a home at 3301 Camvic Terrace and demanding cash.
After further investigation, police discovered the incident actually evolved out of a situation where two men, described by police as heroin dealers, approached two other people in an apartment parking lot demanding cash.
There were no guns, or gunshots, involved in the incident, witnesses later told Cheviot police. The thieves made off with a $20 pair of sweatpants.
Police said one of the witnesses initially incorrectly described the incident as an armed home invasion.
Cheviot police are no longer investigating the incident as a home invasion.
