The off-duty Dayton police sergeant who located two Columbus teenagers wanted in connection with multiple homicides and a carjacking was going to go to a neighborhood cleanup Saturday morning.
But rain showers canceled that event and Dayton Sgt. John Riegel instead drove his personal vehicle to a northwest Dayton house that Columbus police suspected the teens would visit. Once there, Riegel found Nathaniel Brunner, 18, and Devonere Simmonds, 17, asleep in a still-running stolen vehicle with a weapon between them on the car seat.
