A man responding to an alarm at a house next door found himself confronted by an intruder. Now Scioto County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for that man.


Leslie Dempsey, 24, of Lucasville, heard an alarm going off at 56 High Street, grabbed his shotgun and went next door. When he opened the door, he observed a tall white male with dark hair, wearing a gray muscle shirt and blue jeans, standing in the doorway of the bedroom.


Dempsey said the man put his hands in the air and began screaming, “I’m leaving.”


Witnesses have identified the man they believe was in the house, and a woman who was with him. Deputies are now searching for that person to question them.
