Elyria police release photo of armed robbery suspect

COURTESY ELYRIA POLICE

COURTESY ELYRIA POLICE

Elyria Police released the photo above of one of the subjects being sought in conjunction with an armed robbery at C-Supermarket, 1227 Lake Ave., on Tuesday night.

Three black men walked into C-Supermarket on 1227 Lake Ave. at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, armed with a sawed-off shotgun and two handguns, according to Elyria police Capt. Chris Costantino. Two of the men looked about 6 feet tall and one was about 5-foot-7, Costantino said.

The men pointed their guns at the two employees and ordered one employee and the one customer in the store to get on the ground while a second employee was ordered to take money out of the register, Costantino said. The men told the three people in the store to cooperate or they would be harmed.

After the second employee handed over the money, the three men left the store on foot and headed southbound from the area, Costantino said.

Anyone who has information on the robbery should call Elyria Police at 323-3302.

    is there any updates on this story? looks like the same story,that was printed up on Wednesday afternoon except a few sentences removed,in which, the description of all three men would probably help..

    • Phil Blank

      I thought so too.
      We seen the photo before.

      • Arietta Sullivan

        yea it started to circulate on the CT’s facebook page by a woman who ‘claimed’ the owner of the store gave it to her&she started to ‘play cop’ and start circulating it before the cops did but they had her take it down..alittle too late,after it was was shared by quite a few people.

        • Arietta Sullivan

          the pic,i’m talking about,by the way

      • Arietta Sullivan

        i know i would have trouble identifying(i’m no good at the guessing game) but i’m just saying,a better description of ALL three men would help someone including the employees,especially them. for such a serious crime,it didn’t get published for almost 24hours later.no ‘newsflash’ as soon as it happened,or nothing. it surprised me cause around the time of the incident,Tuesday,we wasn’t home,but was near by,in between the c-store&the police station,at another establishment&no sirens blaring down the road ‘hot pursuit’,nothing at all and when we got home around 10:15,it was all so quiet in the neighborhood,i didn’t even see ‘red&blue’ lights flashing off the houses around me like we usually do when 1 cruiser has someone even pulled over,in front of that store nor did we notice any cruisers driving around the neighborhood,looking,for ’3 armed men,who just held a store up at gunpoint,robbed them of money&took off on foot’. all we can say,in this house,..we are surprised that it happened that night cause it was awfully quiet.

  • Don Grantzki

    It’s no longer considered to be politically correct to offer accurate descriptions of suspects when there is a photo available such as the one shown in the story.

    • Arietta Sullivan

      this photo is of one out of three men..i’m saying what does the other two look like? there’s three. if the video didn’t catch them then i would think that there would be,at least,alittle bit more of a description then ‘height’.

      • LOLOLOL

        What do you think they look like? lets play the odds here.

        • Arietta Sullivan

          i seriously don’t care lol

        • Arietta Sullivan

          just need a good laugh now..for all i know,purple with polka dots lol

          • golfingirl

            Looks like MJ, mask and all.

            MJ Lives!!!! Just like Elvis……laughing.

          • Arietta Sullivan

            that’s who it reminded me of…lol

          • stillsleepyeyes

            He had a son born in Elyria…………………??

  • Barack Obozo

    Is it considered politically correct to endanger the public by NOT calling a spade a spade? It is what it is ……

  • Mark B

    Is this City and News Paper totally @ss Backwards or what ?

  • doug zen

    He looks like bro delish

    • Jeff

      lol

  • Barack Obozo

    You certainly don’t want to provide any suspect descriptions because you might offend the suspect. Are the CT editors worried they won’t be invited to the annual NAACP summer BBQ? The shame of it all …….

  • trose1

    CT please monitor the racist comments u allow on your website. It is disgusting.

    • Sis Delish

      They should of omitted the picture of the suspect then.

      • Sean MacNair

        They should omit anyone not willing to use their real name. I mean, anyone writing a letter to the newspaper can’t get away with crap like “Sis Delish” or “Zen Grouch”, they have to use real names.

        • Pablo Jones

          Or ban people that don’t use their real picture.

          • Sis Delish

            Or… maybe he really thinks he is Bono and therefore not responsible for any of his comments or actions, George.

          • Sean MacNair

            I never said I was Bono, dumb f*ck. I put my own name on my posts.

          • Sis Delish

            Thinned Skinned aren’t we?

        • Otter

          Really? Do you want the crazies who post on here to be able to find out personal information about you? Piss off one of them, and they come knocking on your door…..

        • Sis Delish

          Guess you are unaware of how the internet works.

          • Sis Delish

            Tell us, you Identity Thief, tell us how you impersonate others on The Internet.

        • Mark B

          Who checked your idea when you signed up

          • Guest

            So, you believe it is coincidental there are two posters with the same name?

            And, if I would create another poster named Mark B, then began posting silly stuff under Mark B, you would bless the behavior?

            What say Ye, Mark B,, Sr.?

        • Joe Smith

          Are you against privacy or safety? One reason people on here don’t use their real names is because someone on the original Chronicle page used their real name and someone called the police and falsely stated that the person was selling drugs just because they were pro legalization of pot.

          • Sean MacNair

            The Chronicle site is loaded with bozos who think they’re pro wrestlers or something, the way they develop characters and personas. That’s why they don’t use their real names, has little to do with privacy, has everything to do with making stupid-ass comments and not being man or woman enough to stand behind them.

          • Joe Smith

            Post your address and all other information along with it then if that is what you believe, you are naive if you don’t see the danger of doing so in this day and age.

            Just like what I said above, someone simply didn’t agree that pot should be legal and looked the person up because they knew their real name and called in a anon tip they they were selling drugs to prompt a visit from the police just for having an opinion different than theirs.

            Who knows what else someone might do, it may prompt a “craigslist killer” type of response next time.

            You go ahead and flex in the mirror that you use your real name., I will protect myself and family from lunatics.

            BTW, is that your real pic?

    • Joe Smith

      Yes, please censor free speech in an industry who thrives on the 1st amendment immediately!

      Funny comment from someone who posted:

      Another unhinged white person.

      and

      trose1 • 18 hours ago
      Do we know why these white nuts are chasing after this man? They are weird.

      and

      trose1 • 2 days ago
      Mr. Jabbar is correct.White people are a delusional people. They make up bs and believe it. Then they get angry with other people if u don’t follow their delusions

      and many other racist remarks.

      Google hypocrite

  • Barack Obozo

    CT please monitor the politically correct, self serving, racially righteous comments they vomitus and abhorrent ……. how long must we appease, placate and cajole the “anointed minority?” Enough is enough ……

  • Sis Delish

    That is why there will never be a food truck in downtown Elyria.

    • gollfingirl

      You do not need any more food.

      • golfingirl

        In regards to above reply:

        GolLfingirl ( with 2 “L’s”) = Godfather

        Really Godfather?

        All your old posts now have my photo and name, but with an extra “L.” Are you actually that stupid?

        Just plain creepy!

  • john lewis

    The oxygen thieves are at it again! Three representatives of the black culture have been pinpointed in the robbery, all with guns. They are part of the 12% of our society who are responsible for 50% of the crime. Do they speak for the Black community?

    • golfingirl

      Judging by the surgical mask, my guess he is a doctor who can no longer make a living due to the cuts in physician reimbursement from Obamacare.

      Now has to resort to robbery to make ends meet.

  • Seriously

    ….or “they would be harmed”?….whaaat?….Every square inch of our society is saturated with violence, even cartoons, and all of a sudden it’s politically incorrect to state what they actually told the customer and employee what would happen if they didn’t get down on the floor…..can you “Honestly” picture these very Dangerous Thugs saying, get down on the floor, or “you will be harmed”? HA!!! I think we all know what the second option was….

    • Barack Obozo

      ” ‘Please’ get down on the floor ……” …… these were kinder and gentler scumbags! We just don’t understand them ……. our fault!

  • bdid.d

    Who would have thought, the C-store has better cameras than the bank! Not these guys! Lol

  • DeMarquise Elkins

    Why did they show the picture of the suspect in the article? DATS RACIST !!!
    - Al Sharpton

  • Sis Delish

    As mentioned in the previously deleted story and picture of the Perp… The Perp knew of the TB scare in Elyria, and was merely preventing the spread by wearing the mask…

    • Godfather

      Or he knew all animals look alike!

    • gollfingirl

      Great insight! You hate blacks like me!

  • Barack Obozo

    Forget the prisons …….. “these people” belong in the zoo with mandatory Primate Training 101 with free entitlement bananas, peanuts and extra monthly minutes for their Obama phones! Isn’t this what Planet of the Apes supposed to be like?

  • doug zen

    I hear golfingirl has TB. Too Bitty ones in her shirt. Her boobs look like misquito bites

  • silkskin1960

    What really gets my goat is all you white people that come on here to troll the page every time there is a crime involving black people. But then when the white people do the same thing, I dont see the roast fire burning. Some of you come here daily and just troll from story to story with your negativity….guess what? YOU STILL DONT MATTER and YOU STILL DONT COUNT!! Now….how does that tasted in your mouth?

    • Sis Delish

      Is your goat being harmed? P.E.T.A may want to know.

    • Barack Obozo

      ….. because there’s sooooooooo many BLACK crimes compared to whitey. It is what it is …….. da problem is YOU PEOPLE ….. and your goat!

      • Kelvin Gray

        You people? Really? Which people is “you people”? I need to know so I came quickly get away from the group of individuals known as “you people”.

        • Pablo Jones

          Clear the people with the goats.

        • Barack Obozo

          Avoid the Groid ……

    • Otter

      Try not to let the little people with small minds bother you. I was called a racist by one of them recently, because I commented on a post that referred to “those people”, “crack pipes”, and other lightly veiled comments, but because no actual race was mentioned, I was labeled a raciest, more than once, by the same little man who has no clue who I am, or what race I may be. Just a bunch of attention seeking trolls, trying too make themselves feel better by belittling others.

      • Barack Obozo

        To all the BIG people with gigantic minds with their self serving, pseudo intellectual nonsense: a racist is 2014 is someone having to social courage to finally, unequivocally and explicitly call a spade a spade ……. SPADE! Times …… they are a changin’ …..

        • Otter

          Thank you for helping to make my point.

          • Barack Obozo

            Point-less ……

    • Joe Smith

      You white people? If we said You black people, you black people would have a fit.
      I was not trying to be racist, but practise what you preach.

    • John Davidson

      If you don’t let them know where your goat is tied up they won’t be able to get it.

      The biggest TROLLS I now are Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, George Forbes, and the likes of them. Nothing but s_ _ t stirrers out to make a fast buck off the black man’s supposed problems.

  • Barack Obozo

    What could be more objective than providing the description of the BLACK perp? It is what it is ….. if the BLACK shoe fits, wear both od them!

    • Otter

      We can agree on one thing, when a crime is committed the description should include anything that would help to identify the person who committed the crime, race, hair/eye color, height, weight, and clothing. what we can’t agree on is the racist comments that follow, I understand you are racist, and proud of it. I am not saying you don’t have a right to your opinion, you do, but I also have a right to mine.

      • Barack Obozo

        Oh my …… you wouldn’t know a racist even if he stuffed his face with fried chicken …….. Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-A-Dee-A ….

        Racial BLACKmail …… no justice,
        Racial extortion …… no peace ……. Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah …..

        • Otter

          ? I guess that ranting made sense to you. Have a good day, in your hate filled world. I am done.

          • Barack Obozo

            What, something about fried chicken offends you? Time for a reality check!

        • Godfather

          They all look alike. He will never be caught.

          • Barack Obozo

            Even without the hoodie, earrings, sunglasses, bling-bling, tats and grillz …….. and a box of KFC! …… now would that be profiling? What a shame ……

      • golfingirl

        An otter’s den is called a couch. Male otters are called dogs.

        Your screen name is appropriate.

        • Otter

          Thank you, now I am a racist, who wouldn’t know a racist if they had a face full of fried chicken, male couch dog. And you felt the need to chime in, because??????

          • Barack Obozo

            Ah, your latent impulses showing. Otter man, your alter ego is a slippery slope, slide, avalanche! Just chiming in …… ding, dong!

          • Otter

            Interesting, I have never attacked any one here, yet a few feel the need to name call, and make ridiculous statements that make little, or no sense. What are my “latent impulses”? (And I see your earlier post has been deleted) If it makes you feel better about yourself to, for lack of a better term, to try to bully me, have at it.

          • Barack Obozo

            The only thing that makes little sense here is your feeble attempt at any kind of substantive reply. It’s either stuck on stupid or constipation of the brain. We already concede your diarrhea of the mouth. Besides, you’re a waste of bully time ……

          • Otter

            I see you can’t answer my question, just more insults, so don’t bother to waste any more of your precious brain cells on me, you may find you will need them some day.

          • Barack Obozo

            Just like an arrogant, elitist fool who deludes himself into believing that anyone is even remotely concerned about answering YOUR questions …… wake-up and smell the BBQ!

        • gollfingirl

          I am a racist too. Do not feel bad.

          • golfingirl

            Seems my impostor has added a second “L” to my screen name golfingirl.

            This is such an old trick, cut and paste a photo and change the name ever so slightly so it is hardly detectable.

            I suppose imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Thank you for the compliment.

            Just plain creepy!

    It really doesn’t matter what color that suspect is. Once that “Tipster” reward grows his own Momma is going turn him in. What a wonderful picture !!

    • Barack Obozo

      She’s just trying to set a good example for her other eighteen keeeeds!

  • golfingirl

    Seems I too now have an impostor.

    My impostor has added a second “L” to my screen name golfingirl.

    This is such an old, elementary trick; cut and paste a photo and change the name ever so slightly in an effort to fool others into believing he is me.

    As they say, imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Agrees with me so often, he simply decided to take my name, and even my picture.

    Thank you for the compliment
