WPD Three suspects ID’d in breaking-and-entering


WILMINGTON — Wilmington Police say they’ve identified three suspects involved in breaking into a home, stealing items and selling them.

On Aug. 15 a breaking and entering report was filed by a resident of North Walnut Street.

According to WPD Chief Detective Josh Riley, a detached garage was entered and numerous items were stolen including two rifles, a shotgun, a pistol, two crossbows, a compound bow, hunting equipment, and power tools.

Through the course of the initial investigation police say a few articles of property were located and three suspects were identified.

Riley said Logan Hensley, 20, of Wilmington was found to have participated in the breaking and entering.

“Mr. Hensley was also involved in selling several of the guns and power tools to pawn shops between Wilmington and Dayton,” said Riley. “Mr. Hensley has initially been charged with three counts of receiving stolen property, a felony of the fourth degree.”

The Wilmington Police Department recently shared a Facebook post allegedly made by Hensley stating, “They know who we are what we do and why we do it. But first … They gotta PROVE IT. PROVE THAT (expletive).” In the shared post, WPD wrote, “Mr. Logan Hensley … we have proof … please turn yourself in.”

On Aug. 21 WPD posted on Facebook, “Our thanks to the Blanchester Police Department for capturing Mr. Hensley.”

Riley said the case is being submitted to the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office for review and presentation to the grand jury.

The identities of the remaining suspects are being withheld pending the filing of charges, Riley said.
