Update on CPD needs help in identifying shoplifting suspect

UPDATE::Update on this case: The man in the picture has turned himself into Kmart. An Ofc. made contact with him and he was issued a summons for the theft (Due to the fact we did not have his name, and no warrant had been issued). Apparently a family member had seen this photo online or other media and told him, prompting the suspect to turn himself in.

This person is a suspect in theft of tools from Super Kmart. The suspect left the store in a waiting blue Mini Van. Anyone with information on this can contact the investigating Officer, Mike Short by email mshort@chillicothepolice.com or by phone at 740-773-1191. Refer to report 12-3370.

DRUG TAKEBACK EVENT

The Chillicothe Police Department, Ross Sheriff, Ohio State Patrol and Paint Valley ADAMH Board (click for their website)” are hosting a drug take back event this Saturday, 2-18-12 from 10AM thru
2:00PM. The event will be held at the Law Complex.
This is a good time to collect unused, unwanted medications from your home, a friend, or relative. Unused medications can fall into the hands of children or those that may want to abuse them.
It is not safe to flush large amounts of medication down the toilet or sink. Waste treatment plants cannot safely neutralize many drugs, and they could be sent back into the water system.
The Police department is often called, especially by landlords, to dispose/clean up large amounts of hypodermic needles found on their properties. A Sharps container and rubber gloves can be purchased at many drug stores and are used to safely dispose of needles.
If a needle or other drug instrument (pipe, we do not pick through the trash and fingerprint pipes)is found they should be first placed into a plastic container or other seal able container, such as a coffee can. They can safely be placed into a trash can, without fear a needle could cut through a bag and poke someone.

New Scam in the area

From the desk of Crime Prevention Specialist, Ofc. Bud Lytle:
The Ross County Sheriff’s Office has been notified of a new “scam” going around our area. This is a phone scam in which the caller identifies themselves as being a part of the national Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The caller accuses the victims of having bought prescription medications illegally from another country. They then tell the victim that for a certain amount of money, no charges will be filed against them. The calls we have asks the victim to send their money to the Dominican Republic.

We have notified the DEA and are currently working with them to identify those responsible for this scam.
