MIAMI COUNTY — On Friday, Tipp City Police Department arrested another subject in the connection of the kidnapping and robbery of a Tipp City man last month.
Kimberly Fannin, 34, of Londonderry, was initially interviewed by Tipp City Police and then released following the arrest of two men in connection with the Nov. 26 incident in the 700 block of Kyle Drive.
It was later determined Fannin knew about the aggravated burglary plan and theft of the guns and vehicle prior to the incident. She was arraigned on charges of first degree felony aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery, third degree felony theft, and two counts of fourth degree felony theft in Miami County Municipal Court on Monday.

Fannin was allegedly with Carl Davis, 55, and Shay Wooley, 49, both of Dayton, before and after the home invasion. The three were arrested in the victim’s stolen van in Dayton prior to their arrest on Nov. 26. The men were both charged with aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery, two counts of theft, having a weapon while under disability, and kidnapping.
According to police reports, Davis and Wooley entered the home in the 700 block of Kyle Drive in Tipp City and assaulted the homeowner, tied him up with duct tape and stole his car.
The homeowner told police that he was home alone cutting his hair when the two suspects, both wearing hooded sweatshirts, entered his home. One of the men struck him in the head with a large metal object, bound his hands and legs with duct tape, and left him in the living room.
He told police he noticed that they had stolen several of his firearms and possibly one or more of his cars. Police confirmed that a gun safe had been emptied and that a Dodge Grand Caravan had been stolen.
