Fourth arrest made in drug-related robbery


The Seymour Police Department has made another arrest in connection with an Oct. 12 drug-related robbery on North Ewing Street that led to a male suffering a gunshot wound.

The arrest of Bethany Alyssa Coomer, 19, of Seymour is the fourth person arrested for their involvement in the incident, but more arrests are expected, police said.

Coomer faces charges of burglary with a deadly weapon, a Level 2 felony, and armed robbery, a Level 3 felony.

On Oct. 12, Kianna M. Deleon, 26, of Medora was arrested on a charge of burglary with a deadly weapon and armed robbery.

On Oct. 13, police arrested Amelia Mize-Martinez, 19, of Seymour in connection with the incident. She faces charges of dealing marijuana, possession of marijuana, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.

A 17-year-old male juvenile also has been arrested in connection with the incident.

At 3:15 a.m. Oct. 12, officers responded to a report of a person with a gunshot wound at a home at 916 N. Ewing St., Seymour.

During the incident, several people forcibly entered the home of someone they knew over drug-related motives while armed with a stolen handgun, SPD Public Information Officer Jeremy Helmsing said.

A struggle ensued, and a firearm was used, resulting in one of the entrants being struck by gunfire, he said.

That man suffered a gunshot wound and was flown to an area hospital for medical treatment, Helmsing said.
