1130 hours. While on routine patrol in Commack, a Smithtown Fire Marshal monitors a BOLO for a vehicle that fled from an armed robbery at Kev's Tire Shop at 12 Renwick Ave in Kings Park. Shortly thereafter, the suspect vehicle drives past the Fire Marshal on Harned Road near the Commack Fire Department substation. The Fire Marshal advises the 4th precinct dispatcher of this while making a U-turn to follow the vehicle.

As Suffolk County Police Department units from multiple precincts converged on the area, The Fire Marshal continued to follow and observe the vehicle and relay their whereabouts to the police dispatcher. The suspect vehicle stopped for a red light in the right turn lane on Motor Parkway at Commack Road. The Fire Marshal maintained a position behind the vehicle while waiting for assistance. Suffolk Police sector car 220 was the first police department unit to arrive, The police officer and the Fire Marshal performed a felony stop on the vehicle, pulling each suspect out at gun point. Additional units from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th precincts as well as ESU, K-9 and Highway Patrol arrived as the subjects were being taken into custody. 

As a result of the actions of the Smithtown Fire Marshal , two brothers, Keyon and Kristian Miller as well as Bunice Knight III were arrested and charged with robbery in the first degree. Kenyon and Kristian Miller are accused of entering Kev's Tire Shop where Kenyon allegedly physically attacked an employee. Kristin is accused of pointing a handgun at the victim and threatened to shoot the victim unless he handed over his money. The victim handed over his cash and the suspects fled in a 2014 Toyota Camry being driven by Knight.

Kenyon Miller, 21, Kristin Miller, 19 of 902 Broadway in Brentwood and Knight III of 38 Mississippi Avenue in Bayshore, were arrested and charged with Robbery 1st degree. The were held overnight at the 4th Precinct in Hauppauge and were scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court on December 20th. 

The vehicle was impounded as evidence.

Kudos to the Suffolk County Police officer at the scene of the robbery for quickly broadcasting the bolo on the vehicle and a great job by the Fire Marshal. The interagency cooperation between the Town of Smithtown Department of Public Safety (where the Fire Marshal is assigned) and the Suffolk County Police Department has always been strong, positive and productive. A fine job by all involved. Smithtown Fire Marshals are NYS Peace Officers. The Fire Marshals are armed and have the power to make arrests pursuant to their duties.
