Jeffrey Combs, of Milford, Ohio, faces theft and resisting arrest charges after he allegedly took $200 from an individual and attempted to run from Brown County Sheriff Sergeant Johnson, who wanted to question him regarding the incident.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Brown County Municipal Court, on Nov 12 Johnson was responding in reference to a report of $200 cash being taken. The victim said Combs had stole the money and refused to return it.
Johnson located Combs in Scott Township walking along US-68 in the Stony Hollow area. As soon as Combs saw his vehicle approaching, he allegedly took off on foot into a field.
Johnson said he gave chase, soon catching Combs in the field and placing him under arrest.
The sergeant wrote that Combs had a $20 bill in his hand, and inside of his pockets were two $100 bills and a cell phone.
Combs allegedly told Johnson the victim owed him the money for work.
Deputy Michael Meyers assisted in transporting Combs to Brown County Adult Detention Center.
Combs was charged with one count of first-degree misdemeanor theft and one count of first-degree misdemeanor resisting arrest. He is free on bond at this time.
