Serial burglar arrested in Goshen Township

GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Goshen Township Police Department has arrested a teenager they believe to be involved in a series of burglaries.

The burglaries began Sunday, Nov. 7. They would occur while the people who owned the houses were asleep.

Using multiple tips from CrimeStoppers, police were able to find the suspect at a house on SR 132, where he was found hiding under blankets in the attic.

The 17-year-old suspect lives in Texas and was visiting his uncle at a SR 132 address. The juvenile has been previously charged with burglary and breaking and entering both in Ohio and Texas. 

Meanwhile, residents along SR 132 say their neighborhood has completely changed in light of the burglaries.

"We've started a neighborhood watch now. It had been kind of a country neighborhood, not a lot of locked doors, but that's changed," say Bobby Lally. "I think it will take a while for this community to forget about this. We have our neighborhood watch now and we've decided to continue that and help the police in any way that we can to keep the deep quiet community we've always known this to be."

The suspect is being held at the Clermont County Juvenile Detention Center on an aggravated robbery charge, two charges of aggravated burglary, and one count of possession of criminal tools.
