Summit County Sheriff deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress on Old Ranch Road on Saturday, April 15. The incident occurred after the complainant pulled into their garage and sat in the vehicle long enough for motion-activated lights to turn off. Following that, an unknown white male suspect believed to be approximately 16 years old with a height of 6’1″ and thinly built, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, was observed walking into the garage with a flashlight. The suspect allegedly took an e-bike but was then made aware of the complainant’s presence, which lead to the e-bike being left near the road. The suspect then entered a dark-colored truck or SUV and left the scene. Deputies, officers, and troopers circulated the area in search of the suspect. There was no video footage or latent prints found at the scene.
