robbery suspectsUPDATE: Police report that both suspects were arrested on Saturday, November 16, 2013.
The Marion Police Department is actively searching for two suspects they say teamed up to rob a Speedway gas station at gun point during the early morning hours of Thursday, November 14, 2013.

Investigators say a local business reported having the robbery suspect whose photo was released Thursday, on their video surveillance system acting suspicious in their establishment. Video was obtained from the business which officials say showed the same person from the Speedway robbery video.

In addition to the video, police say an alert employee of the business followed the subject to the parking lot and obtained a license plate number from the vehicle he entered.

With that information detectives of the Marion Police Department soon identified two suspects in the Speedway robbery case. An all-out manhunt was launched for these two suspects, and it is still ongoing. The weapon used in the Speedway robbery has been recovered by police.

Police are seeking Johnny R. Russell, 37, last known address (lka) of 416 Davids Street in Marion and Bradley Miller, 30, lka 495 Mound Street in Marion. Russell is currently on parole.

“The business coming forward and the employee getting the license plate number from the vehicle was the key to breaking the case open,” stated Major Bill Collins.
