DAYTON, Ohio — A retired Dayton police detective, held in the Guernsey County Jail on $1 million bond, is to be arraigned in Cambridge Municipal Court this morning on bank robbery charges.
According to Cambridge police, David M. Hirst entered the U.S. Bank, adjacent to the county courthouse, around 12:45 p.m. last Thursday. He handed a teller a note demanding cash, then fled out the back door with the money. Hirst was confronted by a Cambridge officer who was responding to a call from the bank. Hirst — armed with loaded .40-caliber Glock and .380-caliber Ruger handguns — was taken into custody without incident. He told officers he had an explosive device.
