5 men arrested on suspicion of armed robbery

Police say five suspects were arrested in connection with an armed robbery reported on Wednesday.

As of Thursday afternoon, however, only four people — an Osage County man and three Topeka men — appeared in the Douglas County Jail’s online booking logs.

At 12:40 p.m. Wednesday officers responded to a residence in the 1700 block of Ohio Street for the reported armed robbery, according to the Lawrence Police Department’s activity logs. In all, 23 officers responded.

A short time later, officers stopped a vehicle in northwest Lawrence that they believed to be connected with the robbery, said Lawrence Police Officer Drew Fennelly. Five suspects were taken into custody.

Fennelly did not immediately respond to questions regarding whether the fifth suspect was booked into jail.

No injuries were reported in the robbery, Fennelly said.

The jail’s booking logs show that four arrests with an incident number matching the robbery were made between 12:57 p.m. and 3:57 p.m. Wednesday.

Jacob Seth Wade, 20, Dallas James Hanson, 20, and Colten Ray Tincher, 20, all of Topeka, and Bryan Lee Ward, 22, of Vassar, were all arrested on suspicion of three counts each of aggravated robbery armed with a dangerous weapon and three counts each of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, the logs say.

The four men are currently being held in the Douglas County Jail without bond, the logs say.

Additional information, including the specific address where the robbery took place, was not immediately available.
