Police apprehend suspects in ATV dealership robbery


The van driver was not charged in the incident on Sunday, court records show.

At North Ridge Yamaha, officers found the back door of the shop had been removed and noted fresh ATV tire marks in the mud, police reports show.

Dunavant’s name has been on the suspect list of several police reports recently, all involving ATV thefts or riding ATVs on roads or private property, Geneva police reports show. Dunavant was also a suspect in the low-speed mostly off-road chase through the city on Nov. 3, which ended after a police cruiser became stuck in the mud, police reports show. No charges were filed in that incident, court records show.

Geneva Police Chief Dan Dudik said the charges against Sullivan and Dunavant were filed through the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department and the pair will face no direct charges through the city’s police department.

Dudik praised the Geneva woman who called police Sunday.

“A large percentage of our captures are things someone reports,” he said. “The officers don’t usually roll up on something. We count on citizens who report suspicious activity.”
