When someone invades your security and privacy to take what is yours, it is at least some consolation when that person is caught by authorities, and the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office believes they have solved one such crime with the arrest of David L. Bevins, 33, of Wheelersburg.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said his office received a call from a woman on June 20, 2016 stating that somebody had broken into her home and had stolen several items.
He said a deputy responded to the location, a report was taken and forwarded to a detective for a further investigation. During that investigation detectives were able to identify a possible suspect and that suspect was Bevins.
On Tuesday detectives received information that the suspect had returned home, detective Jodi Conkel, along with Porter Township Community Policing Deputy Luke Jenkins and deputy Jay Springs responded to a residence on Hammerstein Road in Wheelersburg and were able to detain Bevins without incident which resulted in a search of his residence.
Donini said most of the property has been recovered including several televisions, a microwave, several thousands of dollars’ worth of clothing and shoes, make-up, perfume, jewelry, a sound bar and other household items.
Bevins has been charged with one count of burglary a felony of the second degree and served an outstanding warrant for driving under suspension through Portsmouth Municipal Court. Bevins is being held without bond with a holder out of Jackson County.
Anyone with information regarding the case can contact Detective Jodi Conkel at 740-351-1091. All calls will remain anonymous.
