The information released in this update is in regards to the residential burglary that occurred on State Road 62 on 8/14/2013, which is currently under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office. A sketch artist with the Cincinnati Police Dept, Det. Jane Noel, has offered her services to draft the composite sketch of the suspect. It is important to remember a sketch may not be an exact match, but rather a drawing of a subject that is very close in description. It has also been learned there was a faded blue pickup truck, possibly a Chevy S-10, or Ford Ranger style, in the area the day of the burglary.  If anyone can link a truck as described above with the person in the sketch, please provide any information as well. The Sheriff’s Office wants to thank everyone for any help in this matter in advance.
