KENWOOD, OH (FOX19) - The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office thought they were investigating a call about an active shooter situation, but instead found an attempted jewelry theft.
Deputies say they were dispatched to the Kenwood Towne Center on Montgomery Road for an active shooter. Once on the scene, officers found no evidence of a shooting.
Instead, a suspect attempted to smash the jewelry display with a hammer at Stafford Jewelers, deputies say. They say the suspect was unsuccessful and left.
No injuries were reported and no jewelry was taken.
The suspect is described as being a man in his 30s wearing all black.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office.
A separate jewelry theft happened at the Liberty Center Tuesday night in Butler County. The suspect in that case got away with several rings, police say.
It's unclear if the two cases are related.
