OXFORD — A 33-year-old man was arrested for his role in an aggravated burglary which occurred late last month in Oxford.
According to Oxford Police officials, on Saturday, April 29, at approximately 3:45 a.m., officers were dispatched to 116 W. Church St. in reference to a burglary which had just occurred.
Upon arrival, officers met with the victim, who reported she woke up to a male holding a firearm while standing over her, watching her sleep. When she asked him what he was doing, the suspect told her that her friends had asked him to take care of her. The victim assured him she was fine and she stood up. The suspect tucked the firearm into his pocket and the victim walked him down the stairs and out the front door. The victim then locked the door and called police.
During the investigation, it was discovered a television was missing from the residence and the victim’s vehicle was missing. The victim was able to give a very detailed description of the suspect and a “BOLO” for the stolen vehicle was broadcast.
A short time later, with the assistance of Oxford Township Police, Butler County Sheriff’s Office, and two officers from Indiana, the vehicle was recovered in College Corner, Ohio and the suspect was identified.
Along with recovering the weapon used during the aggravated burglary, the stolen television was found to still be inside the vehicle.
Terance King, 33, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony; theft, a fifth-degree felony, and first degree misdemeanor theft, and later transported to the Butler County Jail.
