Patriot Ridge hit by thefts


The Scioto County Sheriff’s Office was kept busy investigating break-ins Sunday on Patriot Ridge in Wheelersburg.

The reports charged multiple cases of criminal damaging/endangering with several items taken in the entries, mainly in vehicles.

At least seven cases of vehicles being broken into in the 400 block of Patriot Ridge were reported, while three more occurred in the 600 block, at least two in the 400 block and multiple cases in the 600 block, with one reported in the 800 block.

The report says among the stolen items were ipods and handguns including a Smith and Wesson .38 special handgun and an Air Lite handgun. There was also a prescription pad stolen in the process.

Most complaints were that windshields and back windows were broken out of vehicles and the vehicles were ransacked.
