• Police arrest 1, searching for 3 others suspected in organized theft ring

    Updated:

    Police in two states are looking for suspects who they say are a part of an organized theft ring targeting Macy’s stores in Ohio and now in Pennsylvania.

    Police said one suspect, Keyon Cleveland, 24, was arrested in Boardman, Ohio, Thursday night and is facing charges there and in Robinson Township.

    Cleveland and his sister, Kenya, as well as two other suspects, an unidentified man and a woman named Tashay Benford, are part of a group of shoplifters that steal high-end merchandise from Macy's stores, according to police.

    Police in Ohio told Channel 11 they are investigating the group in connection with a series of retail thefts including other stores, like Dick's Sporting Goods. 

    Police in Robinson Township believe the Clevelands and Benford are behind a well-organized attempted theft of $8,000 of high end designer merchandise at the Macy’s at Robinson Mall last week. 

    Police say store security briefly detained the two women until Keyon Cleveland assaulted a security guard and the trio jumped into a car and made their getaway.

    Once the suspects got onto the Parkway West, headed to Ohio, police said  the driver was driving close to 100 mph. Officers had to stop the pursuit when they saw the driver almost hit a tractor-trailer.
