Two suspects — a white male about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and a female about 5 feet, 5 inches tall — broke into the tobacco store around 3:20 a.m. June 18 and took thousands of dollars in merchandise.
“Entry was made through the back door,” Williamstown Police Chief Al Rich said. “They cut a hole in it. The broke the glass into the cigar lounge.”
Dry Ridge Mayor Jim Wells wants residents to visit and take pride in the city’s Piddle Park.
However, he realizes a lot of cleaning, hard work and money are needed to revitalize the downtown park.
“The first thing is to get it cleaned up and get the immediate things fixed,” Wells said. “With number one being the look of the park. If it looks nasty, it probably is nasty.”
To help facilitate a revamped park, Wells has partnered with the county to hire a parks director.
