NILES, Ohio -

Two men are in custody in connection with a bank robbery that took place in Liberty Friday afternoon.

Police arrested Michael Williams and Dylan A. Josephhanger after a car chase through several communities.

Authorities said 36-year-old Williams walked into the PNC Bank on Belmont Ave. wearing black glasses and holding a stocking cap. 

He was then observed getting into a blue Infinity that drove out of the parking lot.

When police ran the license plate of the car, it came up stolen. 

An alert went out to Trumbull County agencies, telling them to be on the lookout for Williams.

Warren police spotted the car and chased it through Warren, Howland, Weathersfield and Niles.

The car was found outside of a house on the 50 block of Madison Street near Niles McKinley High School. 

Police followed footprints from the car to a home on John St. 

Police knocked on the door of the house and were met by Dylan A. Josephhanger.

Josephhanger told police nobody was in the home except for his grandmother and father. 

Niles police then talked with the resident who had custodial control of the house, who gave police permission to search their home. 

When police went inside, they found Williams hiding.

Williams and Josephhanger were arrested.

Williams is charged with robbery, failure to comply-operate motor vehicle to flee and receiving stolen property.

Josephhanger was charged with obstructing justice.
