Sibling duo indicted in string of robberies

CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A brother and sister were hit with a 99-count indictment Friday that included aggravated robbery, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.

Maurice Hill and Elizabeth Ragland are accused of committing 16 aggravated robberies in eight cities, across Cuyahoga and Summit County from April 29, 2017 through June 28, 2017.

Hill and Ragland had a routine according to the prosecutor's office. In all of the incidents Ragland would drop off and/or pick up her brother.

Hill would then go into the stores with a hooded sweatshirt, a bandana covering his face, and brandished a .22 handgun. He would pull the weapon out and demand money from the register and would leave. Police say he never fired the weapon.

Hill and Ragland were arrested June 29, almost immediately after the Speedway robbery.

Several agencies worked together including the FBI and the Violent Crimes Task Force to track down the pair who had a pattern.
