Man released on bail, arrested again in string of thefts

ST. BERNARD, OH (FOX19) - Police have arrested the same man twice in connection with a string of thefts across St. Bernard.

Devin Denney, 22, is accused of stealing random items from at least 24 unlocked vehicles over past few weeks, according to St. Bernard Police Chief Steve Moeller.

Investigators found more than 40 pieces of evidence during a search of his grandmother's home Saturday. Denney was arrested and booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center before being released on bond.

While out on bond, police say Denney continued to take items from several more cars. He was arrested again Monday after a search revealed stolen items in his possession including an ATM card and checks that were inside the targeted vehicles.

In some cases, police allege, Denney took loose change from unlocked vehicles. He is also accused of stealing cell phones, weight lifting equipment, thumb drives and bank cards.

Denney faces several misdemeanor and felony charges of receiving stolen property. He is also charged with two misdemeanor drug charges. His bond was set at $80,000.

St. Bernard Police said they recovered several stolen items that have yet to be claimed. Anyone missing items from a vehicle is asked to call investigators at 242-2727.
