Dayton police are looking for a stolen vehicle that was taken in a robbery by a known suspect.
The suspect, Michael Bucey, stole a maroon 2015 Honda CRV bearing Ohio license plate HQD5242, according to a police incident report. Bucey stole the car after assaulting the owner, who reported the incident on Feb. 3.
A robbery charge on Bucey was approved Feb. 6 by the Montgomery County Prosecutors Office.
On Feb. 7, crews spotted the stolen Honda on Otterbein Avenue, the report stated. As the officers drove by, they saw Bucey in the driver’s seat wearing a white t-shirt.
Officers then parked next to the Honda, exited their cruiser and stood next to the driver and passenger side doors.
Bucey locked the Honda’s doors as officers told him to stop and get out of the car, the report stated. He then fled off from the officers after they tried making entry into the car.
The officers didn’t pursue the vehicle but put out a BOLO for Bucey and the 2015 Honda CRV.
