Geneva bank robbed

However, police apprehend male, female suspects


In a bold mid-day robbery, a man and a woman strode into the First Merit Bank on South Broadway on Tuesday and demanded cash. 
After leaving with an undisclosed amount of money, they fled south on Route 534 in a 2004 Chrysler. A bank alarm alerted police. Witnesses along the way informed police of the direction the suspects were heading. 
According to Geneva Police Chief Dan Dudik, four officers and one Northwest Ambulance District paramedic responded and pursued the suspects. They were apprehended near the McDonald’s on Route 534, where they were found throwing money and a dye pack from their vehicle.
 Dye bags are used by banks during robberies to help foil the robbery. The dye pack, which contains dye and fake bank notes, is placed in a  bag with regular money. When they open the cache of money, the dye gets all over the suspects.
Geneva police blotters identified the suspects as a white female with a Ravenna address and a black male with a Willoughby Hills address. 
Dudik said the suspects’ names, ages and amount of money stolen will be made available after arraignment in Western County Court. 
Whether the suspects, who are being held in the Geneva City jail, were armed has yet to be divulged. Further details will be made known after arraignment.
