Batavia Township- A man has been indicted by the Clermont County Grand Jury for twenty-one counts concerning his involvement in a series of thefts and burglaries. Throughout the month of October into the first week of November, a number of subdivisions in Batavia Township experienced a significant increase in thefts from vehicles and garages.
Areas of the township impacted were: Bristol Lake, Sycamore Creek, Braxton Parke, Buxton Meadows, Woodsmill, Mt.Holly Preserve, Crown Station Apartment complex along with Woodfruff Ln. and Whitaker Ln. off of Amelia Olive Branch Rd. To date, reports of property thefts from vehicles and garages have been taken from twenty-one citizens of Batavia Township. Property included electronics such as GPS units, cell phones, power tools, and hand tools. The total value of the reported property is more than $32,000.00. Investigators have been unable to locate any of the stolen property.
On the morning of November 13, 2010, Sheriff’s road patrol units were notified by a citizen who observed a suspicious subject in a vehicle at Crown Station Apartments. Deputies arrived on the scene and after a foot pursuit arrested Roger Stiger for theft of property from a vehicle. The night supervisor notified the Criminal Investigative Section who immediately began a much larger investigation into Stiger’s activities prior to the November 13th incident. The investigation is continuing, and it is possible additional suspects may be charged.
Roger Stiger has been indicted for four counts of burglary, a 2nd degree felony, twelve counts of breaking and entering, 5th degree felony, and five counts of 1st degree Misdemeanor Theft. This arrest will clear up most of the recent reports in Batavia Township. Investigators will review reports from surrounding townships to see if there are additional cases in which Roger Stiger may have been involved. Roger Stiger is currently incarcerated at the Clermont County Jail.
