Three men are behind bars after leading officers on a pursuit through parts of Dodge and Douglas County this morning. It started with a bank robbery in Fremont. The three suspects took off and headed toward Omaha when around 11:15 they made a stop at 168th and Dodge Street.
Brian O’Neil was working at the Village Point Best Buy when two of the suspects ran into the store and straight to the bathroom. They were followed a minute later by police.
O’Neil says, “A couple of guys (police) ran by me with those assault rifles they got and then we heard ‘everybody get down’ so we got down and hit on the floor. I could see they running toward the bathroom and then they said they had them in the bathroom and made all of us head to the front of the store. They handcuffed them and brought them out.”
The third suspect was found hiding in a nearby ravine. Further details have not yet been released.
