John Branham, Jerry Chandler, Kurt Doyle and Timothy Keeton were arrested after officers stopped their vehicle around 4 p.m. on I-75 near Tipp City. 

During the video, officers pulled a large amount of cash from one of the suspect’s pockets.

The four men appeared earlier this month in Miami County Municipal Court and their bonds were set at $500,000 each. 

The suspects are believed to possibly be involved in other similar crimes across the state and also are said to have criminal histories in other states, investigators said.
