Clermont County, Ohio- Sheriff Rodenberg reports that two twenty-five count indictments were returned by the Clermont County Grand Jury on September 1, 2010, against Gerald Sarver M/W 35 years old and Laverne Sarver F/W 29 years old of 233 Sulphur Springs Dr. Batavia OH.
Rodenberg said, “The charges consisted of fourteen Burglary charges (2nd degree felony), one charge of Attempted Burglary (3rd degree felony), nine charges of Theft (5th degree felony) and one charge of Theft of a Firearm (3rd degree felony). These charges resulted from fifteen reports our office received in the past 90 days.”
Burglaries occurred on Glancy Corner, Hawley Road, Moore Marathon, State Route 131, Sharps Cutoff, Bauer Road, No.9 Road, US 50, and Weaver Road in Jackson Township, Bethel Concord Road, Clover Road, Twin Bridges and Todd’s Run Foster Road in Williamsburg Township, and on Lucas Rd in Wayne Township. Rodenberg said, “Eight reports were taken from Jackson Township, four from Williamsburg Township, and three from Wayne Township”. “The quick resolution of these cases is the direct result of intense investigative efforts by our Deputies.”
Chief Deputy Rick W. Combs said, “The husband and wife team used State Route 133 as a corridor from their Batavia home to locate potential targets. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office was involved in the complex investigation and it is likely additional charges and suspects will be identified as investigators continue to work the cases.” Gerald Sarver is incarcerated in the Brown County Jail, and Laverne Sarver is in Clermont County Jail.
None of the stolen property was recovered. Any further questions regarding this case should be referred to either Don White or Woody Breyer, Clermont Co. Prosecutor’s Office, 732-7313.
