Tioga County Sheriff Investigating Armed Robbery in Barton

The Tioga County Sheriff Department is looking for 17-year-old Isaiah Ramirez of Barton. Ramirez is one of two Barton men accused of robbing a person at gunpoint at a Route 17C residence in the Town of Tioga on October 11. Deputies received the call of an armed robbery in the early morning. Investigators learned that a person was lured to the residence and robbed at gunpoint by Ramirez and a second man, 22-year-old Mason Runyon. Later that day, authorities acted on a search warrant and entered the residence. That’s when police say Ramirez and Runyon fled the scene. Authorities found Runyon in a nearby wooded area. Ramirez remains at large. He is described as a white male, approximately 5’9” tall and 230 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Both men are said to live at 2255 State Route 17c in Barton. Officials don’t believe it was an isolated incident. Anyone with information about other incidents or Ramirez’s whereabouts should call the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office at 687-1010. Runyon is in Tioga County Jail on charges of first-degree robbery, grand larceny and criminal possession of a weapon.
