HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – Huber Heights police have identified the suspect in a bank robbery Wednesday afternoon that prompted a school lock down.

Police said they found his get-away car, a red Cadillac with no license plates, parked at a nearby apartment complex, but he was gone.  That’s when they locked down the schools.

Lieutenant Mark Lightner said the lock down was lifted shortly before 3:00.

Police describe Crenshaw as 5’10”, 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.  He was wearing a dark hat and brown coat at the time.  Officers say he showed a silver handgun with black grips.  Police say a dye pack exploded inside the car they believe Crenshaw was driving, so he could have dye on his clothes.

Crenshaw is known to have addresses in Huber Heights, Butler Township and Dayton.  He has an active felony warrant out of Huber Heights for receiving stolen property in a previous case.
