NEWBURY, Ohio - Four people were arrested in connection with an armed robbery at the Newbury Pharmacy.

The pharmacy located at 10758 Kinsman Road was robbed around 9:45 a.m. Thursday.

With the help of the media broadcasting information about the car and suspect description, a Geauga County resident who works at Junction Auto Sales noticed the car had recently been serviced.

The Junction Auto Sales employee contacted the sheriff's office and gave deputies an Ashtabula County address of the recent customer.

Sheriff's went to the address and found the getaway car with two suspects inside, cousins Jonathon and Joshua.

Both were arrested and interviewed.

Sheriff's said they found out that two other suspects had been dropped off at a Greyhound Bus Station in Cleveland and were en route to Detroit.

Sheriff's contacted the Michigan State Police which apprehended Tiggs and the juvenile at the Greyhound in Detroit as they exited the bus.
