GREENFIELD, Ind.–Two men were captured by police after robbing a CVS in Greenfield of prescription medications early Tuesday morning. One of the men was bitten by a police dog after refusing to follow the commands of officers who had tracked him to a creek.
Greenfield Police responded to a 911 call about a robbery at the CVS on North State St., about 2 a.m. Tuesday. The store is open 24/7, said Det. Chuck McMichael, and the men who were holding up the store were behind the counter with the pharmacist.
Before police arrived, the men took off.
As cops were nearing the CVS, they saw a white Chevy speeding away down McKenzie Rd. When the officers hit the blue lights the men led them on a short chase, which ended when they crashed at the roundabout at McKenzie and Broadway streets.
Jaron K. Griffin, 20, who was the passenger, was captured right away.
The driver, Arian L. Craig, 24, was hiding near a creek and was found when K-9 cops from Fortville and New Palestine were brought in to help search. McMichael says he was bitten when he refused to do what police told him to do. He then gave up.
The meds that were taken from the CVS were found in the car. Both men were taken to jail, said McMaichael.
