Suspects steal snacks and items from Walmart

Oct. 31 at 6 p.m., an off-duty Colerain Officer noticed a white male with a bag of merchandise acting suspicious by a dumpster next to the Verizon Store on College Corner Pike. Oxford Police arrived on scene and made contact with the suspects, Andrew Scott Crank of Oxford and Michelle Johnson of Trenton, according to OPD. Crank had a federal criminal warrant from the Hamilton Police Department and Johnson had a federal warrant for criminal trespass out of the OPD, according to OPD. The bag of merchandise contained a Sony PS3 remote, four packages of decorative automotive interior LED lights, seven PS3 games, two Hershey's Crème Pie Wedges, a Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich and a container of Macaroni and Cheese. The officer asked Crank to explain the bag. Crank said a man named Mike Jones called him to meet him in the parking lot and pay $110 for the merchandise. The officer asked why he was behind a dumpster, and Crank said he wasn't sure if the merchandise was stolen. Crank denied being in Walmart and both subjects were placed under arrest for their warrants. At the OPD, the female said she was inside Walmart but Crank was not with her. The Walmart manager valued the stolen goods to be $233. According to Walmart surveillance video, both subjects were in the store. Johnson told officers it was Crank's birthday and he needed money. She was not sure if the merchandise was paid for because they did not leave together. Both were charged with theft and trespass, according to OPD.
