Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said three people have been arrested in connection with the robbery last week at PNC Bank in Rosemount. Daniel R. Furnier, 32, of West Portsmouth has been charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony, and was served warrants for driving under suspension, obstructing official business and not wearing a seat belt. Furnier was held on a bond of $128,000. "We recognized him as soon as we saw the video," Scioto County Sheriff's Capt. David Hall said. "We had been looking for him on some other unrelated crimes. And as soon as the video popped up the detectives recognized him as being Daniel Furnier." Also arrested were David R. Scott, 34, and Gabriell D. Moore, 18, both of Portsmouth, for complicity to aggravated robbery, first-degree felonies. The Sheriff's Office was called to PNC Bank at Rosemount last Thursday, where employees told deputies and detectives a man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black ball cap had robbed the bank and left on foot. Furnier was found and arrested on warrants Sunday by the Portsmouth Police Department at a residence on Seventh Street in Portsmouth. "Thursday night we went door to door in the city of Portsmouth with the assistance of the Police Department, checking residences on Seventh Street and up around Spring Lane," Hall said. "The PD ran across him Saturday night/Sunday morning around 3:30 in the morning down on Seventh Street. They (Portsmouth Police) were great by helping us go door to door." After an ongoing investigation, detectives responded to another residence on Seventh Street and detained Scott and Moore. All three are schedule to appear at 9 a.m. today in Portsmouth Municipal Court.
