HAMILTON, Ohio -- As Christmas approaches, the Hamilton Police Department is willing to put something extra in the stocking of whoever can help track down someone on its naughty list.

The department posted Thursday afternoon on Facebook to offer $250 for information leading to the capture of Roger Cole Jr., who Sgt. Brian Robinson said is wanted for obstructing official business.

"He’s well-known to a lot of people in Hamilton, so we figured, 'Hey, you know, get their attention, throw out a $250 reward,'" Robinson said. “It’s getting close to Christmas time; let’s see what works."

The police department requested that anyone with information about Cole’s whereabouts call Det. Shawn Fryman at 513-868-5811, extension 1286.
