Muncy said Campos has since been identified as being involved in numerous area break-ins to businesses and formal charges are pending.

Campos also is facing charges in Warren County in connection with a break-in at the Game Day Grille in Clearcreek Twp., Warren County.

During the same time of the Miamisburg break-ins Aug. 4, Miami Twp. police investigated break-ins at McAlister’s Deli, Starbucks and Thai Kitchen, all of which are in the same area, police said.  Muncy said it’s believed Campos may be the suspect in those cases as well.

Campos remains in the Greene County Jail on a breaking and entering charge.

INITIAL REPORT (AUG. 4):

Miamisburg police are looking for a suspect who reportedly broke into Roosters and Chuck E. Cheese’s Saturday.

Police were dispatched to Roosters located at 103 N. Springboro Pike on a report of an alarm around 7:20 a.m.

The male suspect reportedly forced his way into the business, but it appeared he only took change, according to a Miamisburg Police Department release.

Suspect in Roosters

The same suspect reportedly broke into Chuck E. Cheese’s located at 30 Prestige Pl. while police were investigating at Roosters.

A few electronic devices were reported missing, according to the release.

Police are looking for the male who is about five feet ten inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He was wearing black pants, shoes and sweatshirt. He was wearing a bucket hat that was possibly red, white and blue or black. 

Surveillance images show the suspect wearing an apron. Police said they believe it looks like an apron a cook or dishwasher for a restaurant would wear.

According to the release, the suspect was seen walking from the area of Roosters towards Chuck E. Cheese’s.

Suspect in Chuck E. Cheese's

McAlister’s Deli in Miami Township was also broken into around the same time by an unknown suspect, but police said they believe it’s likely the same male who reportedly broke into Roosters and Chuck E. Cheese’s.

It was not made known what, if anything, was taken from McAlister’s Deli located at 

2792 Miamisburg Centerville Rd.

Police said they believe the suspect may be on foot or possibly riding the RTA. He may be on his way to work if he is a cook or dishwasher.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sgt. J.S. Muncy at 937-847-6612.
