GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A break in an armed robbery investigation in Greenville ended with two arrests nearly three years after the crimes.

Police arrested Heath Gessler, 29, and Evan Bowman, 23. They say both residents admitted to the robberies.

Investigators say they robbed the Flower Patch, the former Parkside Beverage Dock and the Fairgrounds Drive Thru between October 25, 2012 and November 13, 2012.

They say the clerks were tied up in each case and the suspects brandished guns.

Both men are in the Darke County Jail on charges of complicity to commit aggravated robbery and complicity to kidnapping. Additional charges are expected when a grand jury convenes in September.

Call the Greenville Police Department at 937-548-1103 if you have any additional information about these crimes.
