CINCINNATI - Cincinnati police are searching for two suspects, one for burglary and the other for a probation violation.
Deron Johnson is wanted on a felony burglary charge. Johnson allegedly entered the home of the victim through an unlocked door without permission, police said.
Upon entering, Johnson allegedly disconnected and removed the victim’s television. Johnson took the TV to West End Loan Pawn Shop and arranged for it to be pawned by paying a customer to pawn it for him, investigators said.
Johnson is a black male, 25, who is 6-feet tall and weighs 160 pounds. He has a prior criminal history that includes aggravated robbery and possession of drugs.
Johnson’s last known address was on Jones Street in the West End.
Also, police are looking for Tony Spicer for a felony probation violation.
Spicer was charged with breaking and entering in 2011. He was located by police inside Linwood School and had apparently cut some of the copper from the school.
Spicer was convicted and placed on probation. He has violated the terms of probation by testing positive for drugs, failing to pay restitution and failing to gain employment, police said.
Spicer is a white male, 30, who is 5-feet-9-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. Spicer was last known to live in the 4400 block of Eastern Avenue.
