WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - A man was arrested Friday after breaking and entering into a Butler County home, according to Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.

Jones says deputies arrested Cody Wallen, 29, of Hamilton after he broke into a home on Windy Meadows Drive and entered through a window.

The homeowners were alerted by their Ring camera and then contacted Butler County Dispatch.

When the deputies arrived, Wallen ran from the scene and led deputies on a lengthy foot pursuit, Jones said.

The sheriff says that deputies found Wallen hiding in a garage on Wayne’s Trace Road.

He was then taken into custody after resisting arrest, Jones said.

In addition, the sheriff says deputies found thousands of pills on Wallen.

Wallen was booked in the Butler County Jail and is facing charges of burglary, breaking and entering, theft, and resisting arrest.

The sheriff adds that Wallen also had four outstanding warrants, two for breaking and entering.
