EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Evansville police have apparently put an end to a crime spree.

Miller is facing six counts of Robbery while Armed with a Deadly Weapon and one count of Battery. Gibson is preliminarily charged with three counts of Robbery while Armed with a Deadly Weapon.

Gibson told officers he used his vehicle to drive away from the scene in two of the robberies and followed Miller to another robbery to pick him up. The affidavit states Gibson told officers he was instructed by Miller to follow him to a parking lot on Weinbach Avenue on April 28, 2017. Gibson then told officers he picked up Miller after he committed the robbery.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, Miller stated to officers he robbed four females at gunpoint near the University of Evansville campus on April 28. Miller told the officers during the questioning process he borrowed a female's vehicle to use in this robbery.
