UDF robber strikes again

Three United Dairy Farmers stores were robbed in less than four hours overnight amid a string of holdups at the convenience stores in Greater Cincinnati this summer.

Two were hit in the city, and a third heist was reported in Mt. Healthy, notes Raycom Media, repeating information by local police.

Cincinnati police said their two - in Pleasant Ridge and Westwood - are connected by the same suspect:

  • 3190 Woodford Ave., Pleasant Ridge just before 4 a.m. Thursday. A man armed with a gun fled with about $200 in cash from the register, police said. The suspect was last seen running southbound on Ridge Avenue.

  • 3360 Glenmore Ave., Westwood, just after 3 a.m. Thursday. The suspects were described as two men wearing all black. This UDF also was robbed earlier this month by two men suspected of robbing a UDF in Norwood, according to Crime Stoppers.

  • 7900 Hamilton Ave., Mt. Healthy, 12:24 a.m. Thursday. A man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt pointed a black firearm at a female employee and demanded cash. He fled with an undetermined amount and was last seen running east on Adams Road. No injuries were reported in all the incidents.

    These three robberies come after a UDF was robbed at gunpoint on Clifton Avenue in Clifton Wednesday and at least five other UDFs were held up in the past month in the city and across Hamilton County communities such as Norwood and Elmwood Place, according to police.
