Police release photos from Boardman clown mask robbery
Two men have been arrested following an alleged break-in at the BP gas station on Boardman Canfield Road.
Police say the break-in occurred around 5:52 a.m. Saturday.
According to the report, one suspect was wearing a clown mask from the movie 'IT,' and another was wearing a sugar skull mask.
Officers say one suspect resembled Jermaine Stroughter who they were familiar with and had active warrants.
Police say they went to Stroughter's last known address and heard people talking inside.
According to the report, officers served the warrant and saw a 17-year-old trying to get out of the apartment through the window.
Police say the juvenile yelled "I'm not Jermaine" and went back into the apartment.
That juvenile and two others were taken out of the apartment before they found Stroughter in the bedroom.
A search of one of the juveniles yielded a pack of 100 cigarettes and $70 cash.
The two female juveniles said they did not know if Stroughter and the male juvenile were wearing clothing that matched the description of the break-in suspects.
The females said Stroughter and the male juvenile had Black and Milds, White Owls and Newport cigarettes that they did not have earlier.
Police reports say Stroughter denied committing the break-in.
Officers executed a search warrant at the apartment where they found the masks, a bloody hoodie, a backpack filled with cigarettes and other items related to the break-in.
The 17-year-old male has been charged with breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
Stroughter has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
