A 911 caller told dispatchers that someone had tied them and their manager up and put them on the ground.

Dayton police said the suspects took pills from the store.

“What we kind of see is that we’ve had drugstore robberies before where pills were taken west of Dayton, we don’t think this crime in Wilmington was related to those. people involved usually one incoming suspect, not three,” Johns said.

Dayton police said there was a 13% increase in robberies this year compared to last year.

“For the people inside this store, the employees and the customers, it must have been a very traumatic experience, so by all means we are doing everything we can to try to identify these three thieves,” said Johns.

Dayton police said they do not have names of suspects at this time and could not comment on any leads.
