Hosea then said he chased them into his basement, but thought better, and had his wife call the police.
The two suspects allegedly hid in the woods in and around N. Fort Thomas Ave. About 2 hours later and officer spotted them and they took off, eventually hiding in a recycling dumpster at St. Catherine. When they were caught, according to Hosea, 15-20 cruisers from many jurisdictions had them surrounded in the early morning hours.
"I'm sure glad to pay my taxes in Fort Thomas this week," said Hosea.
Also according to Hosea, this robbery was not random. "I come to find out that these were the same people who broke in and robbed (us) two other times."
The alleged burglars are being charged with first degree robbery. They are also charged with receiving stolen property.
"They started their night in Covington," said Sgt. Casey Kilgore of the FTPD. "They stole an (Ford) F150, drove around a little bit and ended up here, which is where they wrecked the truck then went to (Hosea's) home."
