- Ken Filing, Steubenville Pike, Hammondsville, reported at 12:55 p.m. Monday his camper was stolen from the property. Deputies ran the VIN provided by Filing and found it was registered to another owner. Filing claimed he never switched it into his name. Deputies told him to have that done and then they will enter it into the database as a stolen camper.

- Robert and Barbara Maines, Richardson Street, Negley, reported at 4:50 a.m. Monday someone entered their home while they were sleeping. Robert Maines told deputies he heard rustling downstairs and the dogs became agitated. When he started down the stairs he heard a bang from his cellar door, which leads outside the house. All of his handguns were taken from the cellar and $80 from his wallet on his kitchen table. A door handle was dented and the kitchen window was pushed up about six inches. While deputies were there investigating, Robert Maines found a bow case, which was usually near his guns in the basement. Instead it was out of place beside a door and contained all his handguns. Deputies believed Maines coming down the stairs spooked the robber and the person fled without the case. A neighbor told Maines he saw a 1998 dark Cavalier driving suspiciously in the area.

- Melissa Chapman, North Front Street, Negley, reported at 3:42 p.m. Monday sometime overnight someone entered their home and went through purses and stole a Nook tablet and Wii game console.
