With very little information coming in from Crimestoppers and locally, we had to figure this guy wasn’t one of our locals. Or even from our counties we normally get our criminals from.
Ohio Adult Parole Authority contacted us today and advised the suspect was on release and was positively identified. The suspect, is from Licking County and is being held there on parole violations. Warrants for our incident have been requested.
In honor of Ofc. Larry Cox on the 10 year anniversary of his End of Watch, a candlelight vigil will be held on the steps of the Ross County Common Pleas Courthouse. Please plan to attend on 4-21-15 at 7:00PM.
We believe ID has been made, and just waiting on some loose ends to be confirmed. We thank everyone who called, emailed and text info. We received tips from Kentucky and Portsmouth, so thanks to those that shared info to get it down where it needed to go
The ID of the pictured suspect is sought by the CPD. The woman is a suspect in several thefts from Kohls. The woman was last confronted by loss prevention on Thursday but was able to escape in a gold Mercury with Kentucky plates.
It is believed she is staying locally due to her pattern of recent thefts. Anyone knowing the ID of the suspect can call Ofc. Lawhorn at 740-773-1191.
