On Thursday morning, Coshocton County sheriff's deputies and Newcomerstown police arrested two men and a woman who were wanted in connection with an armed robbery that took place at 9 p.m. Wednesday in the Touraine Club parking lot in Newcomerstown.
The Coshocton County Sheriff's Office reported deputies went to the 1400 block of S. 14th Street to look for the suspects, and all three were at the residence. The suspects then fled on foot.
After a short pursuit, one male suspect was taken into custody.
The female suspect was taken into custody near the residence while the final male suspect was later found by the sheriff's office K-9 unit in a wooded area nearby.
A post on the Newcomerstown Police Department’s Facebook Thursday identified the suspects as Travis Queen, 32; Cassandra Queen, 30; and Colt Joseph "CJ" Shoults, 34, all of Coshocton. Newcomerstown police reported all three face one count of aggravated robbery.
All suspects were taken into custody without incident, according to the sheriff's office.
The trio is alleged to have robbed a 30-year-old woman at the club.
A search warrant for the South 14th Street residence and a vehicle was then executed by authorities. Evidence was reportedly seized at that time.
The Coshocton High School and Elementary schools were placed on lock down at 7:23 a.m. due to the proximity to the schools. The schools remained on lock down until 8:32 a.m.
Assisting in Thursday's events were the Coshocton County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit, detectives, Coshocton City Fire Department and Coshocton County Dog Warden.
Newcomerstown police said a knife was visible at the time of the robbery and the suspects indicated they also had a gun. The suspects were believed to be driving a 2007 Ford Focus at the time of the robbery.
Anyone with information regarding the incident can call the Newcomerstown Police Department, 740-498-6161.
The suspects are being held in the Tuscarawas County Jail, awaiting an appearance in the Southern District Court in Uhrichsville.
The sheriff's office will continue assisting Newcomerstown police with the investigation, as needed.
