LISBON - Two people wanted in a string of burglaries in three counties are being sought both by the U.S. Marshal's Office and local sheriff's deputies, prompting a reward to be offered.
Sheldon Robinson, 39, and Melissa A. Dickson, 27, whose last known address was on Crestview Road near Columbiana, are wanted in connection to burglaries in Columbiana and Trumbull counties along with Hancock County in West Virginia. According to a press release, charges they are facing include burglary and complicity.
Clerk of court records also show Dickson currently has a warrant for pending charges of two counts of conveying illegal drugs onto the grounds of a detention facility, an indictment which was issued in 2012.
Robinson has a previous theft conviction in county Municipal Court from 2012. He has failed to pay fines from that case, prompting a warrant for him as well.
Sheriff Ray Stone said deputies have been looking for the two for about a week, checking mostly in the areas of East Fairfield, Unity Township and Rogers, where at least one of them has had family connections in the past. Both listed the Crestview Road address on prior court documents.
However, the burglaries have been happening all throughout the county and the other counties. The thefts also happen at various times. Stone said the two are also suspects in the theft of gas in this county recently.
The pair are believed to be driving a Ford F-150, silver in color, with an extended cab. The license plate was reported stolen from the Columbiana area - BP68YX.
Although the amount of the reward is not being released, Stone said it mostly depends on the information given and whether or not it leads to an arrest. He urges anyone who has information about where deputies can locate Robinson or Dickson to call 424-7255.
"We are asking for the public's assistance," Stone said. "The more eyes out there the better."
