Strike team nabs 18-year-old wanted in Dayton ‘crime spree’



The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team arrested an 18-year-old wanted for a “crime spree” in Dayton.

Naimon Alexander Ewing was arraigned Thursday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court for two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of robbery, each with three-year firearm specifications.

Ewing was arrested Tuesday at his home in the 800 block of Burwood Avenue in Dayton. A warrant for his arrest was issued May 31 when he was indicted by a county grand jury, court records show.

The charges against Ewing allege that he robbed people on April 3 coming to Dayton to sell property, according to the Dayton Police Department.

Some of the stolen items and “other key evidence” were seized Wednesday from Ewing’s residence during a search conducted with a warrant, according to police.

When reached for comment, Ewing’s attorney Kevin Lennen said, “We are just beginning our investigation and we will have further comment as the case progresses.”

Dayton police said it is likely there are other potential victims and that additional charges are possible. Anyone who may have been a victim is urged to call Dayton police at 937-333-1232.

Ewing remains held on $50,000 bail in the Montgomery County Jail.
