Clint A. Loomis of Kirkwood is facing felony robbery charges related to a string of gas station robberies after a successful capture by the Broome County Sheriff’s Office.

First Robbery

On Thursday, May 9, 2024, at approximately 5:40 a.m., the Broome County Sheriff’s Road Patrol responded to a robbery report at the Speedway gas station on Route 7 in Sanitaria Springs. Reports state that a male entered the store and grabbed a cash register off the counter in the cashier's presence. The male then fled the scene in a grey Ford F-150 pickup truck with the cash register.

Second Robbery

While patrols were investigating the Sanitaria Springs robbery, another robbery occurred at the Mirabito gas station in the Village of Windsor. The suspect description and vehicle matched that of the first robbery. The suspect allegedly demanded money from the cashier and fled the scene with the cash.

Third Incident

On Friday, May 10, 2024, in the evening hours, the theft of a gas station cash register occurred in the Village of Greene, with the suspect matching Loomis’ description.

Attempt to Flee

Broome County Sheriff’s Office deputies were deployed to various roads leading into Broome County from Chenango County.

At 8:23 p.m, Loomis’ vehicle was spotted traveling south on Route 12 in the Town of Chenango. A Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, prompting Loomis to pull into a nearby parking lot. Loomis then exited his vehicle, claiming to have tire problems. However, when the deputy attempted to detain him, Loomis resisted and tried to reenter his vehicle. Despite the deployment of a Taser, Loomis managed to get back into his vehicle and fled the scene, speeding south on Route 12

Pursuit and Capture

Deputies continued their pursuit of Loomis onto Upper Front St. and then onto Route I-81 southbound, where they deployed tire deflation devices, similar to “spike strips”, at Exit 3 and Exit 2. Loomis evaded the tire deflation devices at Route I-81 South at Exit 3 but was unable to do so at Exit 2.

Despite his damaged tires, Loomis persisted in fleeing from Sheriff’s Deputies and assisting members of the New York State Police. He eventually drove into the center median near Exit 1, abandoning his vehicle while it was still in motion. Loomis then ran down the embankment onto Cedarhurst Road in the Town of Kirkwood, where State Troopers and Sheriff’s Deputies pursued him on foot and successfully apprehended him.

Charges

Loomis appeared in court on multiple charges, including robbery, obstructing government administration, unlawful fleeing from police, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, and numerous vehicle and traffic violations. He remains in custody at the Broome County Correctional Facility.
