FAIRLAWN, Ohio (WOIO) - 47-year-old Antwone Stubbs robbed a Huntington Bank in Fairlawn and didn’t pull over when law enforcement caught up to him, Akron police said.

Just before 10:30 a.m. Monday, officers from the Akron and Fairlawn police departments responded to calls of a robbery at the Huntington Bank on West Market Street.

During the robbery, Stubbs indicated he had a gun and got away with some money.

Fairlawn police, using a description of the suspect and vehicle, including the license plate, were able to trace the vehicle’s registration to a property on South Arlington Street.

Minutes later, police spotted Stubbs driving in the area of South Arlington Street and Derbydale Road.

Officiers tried to pull over Stubbs, who was driving a yellow Chevy Cavalier, but Stubbs refused to pull over and led them on a chase that lasted several minutes before ending on Austin Avenue between Virginia and Sylvan Avenues.

Stubbs was taken into custody and faces charges of Failure to Comply with Order or Signal of Police Officer, Robbery, and Criminal Trespassing.
