Two Arrested in Best Buy Robbery

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Police arrested two people after an alleged robbery at the Best Buy store on Gateway Street near the Randy Pape Beltline. It happened Sunday around 7:30 pm, while the store was still open.

Police said Steven Wheeler tried leaving the store with a laptop and when employees confronted him, he threatened them and stated he had a gun.

Wheeler and a female suspect, Aerica Kohler, then took off on foot.

Police said neighbors called 911 alerting them of a man jumping over fences.

Officers eventually caught up with Wheeler in the Willakenzie Neighborhood when a homeowner reported a man entering his house.

Both Kohler and Wheeler were lodged in the Lane County Jail.
