ELYRIA — Despite an almost hour-long search involving Elyria police officers and county sheriff deputies, three men involved in an armed robbery Wednesday remained at large.

Around 2 p.m. Wednesday, three men — two of whom had guns — entered Domino’s Pizza at 1405 East Ave. and demanded money from the employees.

After taking an undisclosed amount of money, the men ran south down East Avenue, according to Lorain County sheriff’s Sgt. Heath Tester.

All three men were black and one was wearing a black jacket and tan pants while another was wearing a red hat, according to Lorain County sheriff’s Lt. Donald Barker.

Tester said the manager followed the men and chased them to the Wilkes Villa housing complex, where he told police a couple of the men ran into one of the apartments. Officers searched the complex for almost an hour to no avail.

    I hope those 3 cops are just posing for a picture. It doesn’t seem safe that the cop on the right is standing right in front of a window and no one is watching and at the same time aiming his gun right at the young one who’s got his head stuck up against the door.
