Public Alert

The Waynesville Police Department is seeking assistance from the public. This morning between the hours of 2:00 am and 6:00 am, an occupied home on Fourth Street was entered forcibly through a window. Several personal items and prescription medications were taken while the resident was asleep. When the resident woke up and saw the male suspect, she screamed causing the man to exit the house through the front door. A subsequent investigation revealed there were a few other homes where entry was attempted through a window. We did locate items taken from the home on Fourth Street in the rear lot of the public library. We are processing the evidence obtained and looking into the information received. I am respectfully asking everyone to please secure the windows and doors of your homes and vehicles at night. If you have a ring doorbell or camera system at your home, we ask that you please review them to see if you have any information about last night’s home invasion that could assist us in our investigation. Please call Chief Copeland or Lt Bledsoe at 513-897-8010 with any information.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation,

Chief Copeland
