A law enforcement initiative combining local, state and federal agencies has led to the arrests of three men for sex crimes.
Admitted sexual offender Donald Rose Jr., 44, of Middletown, was arrested on a charge of public indecency, said Miami Twp. police Maj. John DiPietro.
Michael A. Condinelli, 47, of Troy, was also arrested on a charge of public indecency, DiPietro said.
Middletown resident David Helms, 72, was arrested on charges of sexual imposition and public indecency, DiPietro said.
All three were arrested as part of the two-day “Shield Detail” in Montgomery County.
The Ohio Highway Patrol headed the effort and partnered with the Indiana State Police, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Clay Twp., Huber Heights, Miami Twp., New Lebanon and Trotwood police departments along with the U.S. Marshals Service.
The main components were increased traffic and criminal patrols, aggressive OVI enforcement and warrant service seeking to cut down on drunk driving and accident-causing behavior.
Planned for at least four months, the agencies combined to arrest 215 people for driving under suspension, cite 19 commercial vehicles and seven commercial drivers for violations, arrest 18 wanted felons and 48 drunk drivers, issue 190 seat belt violations and increase enforcement.
Two weapons were seized and 35 drug-related offenses were discovered as officers seized marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, codeine and prescription narcotics.
The Dayton Daily News reported Sept. 9 that there were 10,309 outstanding felony warrants in Montgomery County.
