Some Madeira residents need to boil water

        INDIAN HILL — A construction crew working on pavement repairs near Miami Avenue and Shawnee Run Road broke a water main Tuesday afternoon, affecting service to about 2,000 customers in Madeira, officials here said.

        As a result, a boil water advisory has been issued by the Indian Hill Water Works until noon Thursday. The advisory affects only those customers in Madeira who are not served by Cincinnati Water Works.

        Crews were working to repair the more than 70-year-old main, which was damaged shortly before 4 p.m., said Indian Hill Water Works Superintendent Jim Fox.

        He said water service was restored to customers about 6 p.m.

4 more youths charged with setting school fire
        Four juveniles were arrested Monday and charged with setting the April 5 fire at Pleasant Run Middle School in Colerain Township.

        The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department said four boys — three from Colerain Township and one from Grove City — ranging from 13 to 16 years old were each charged with one count of arson.

        The four will appear at a hearing on the charges in Juvenile Court. The hearing date has not been set.

        The sheriff's department said a fifth boy, a 15-year-old from Colerain Township, was arrested April 18 for his alleged involvement in the fire.

        The fire was discovered at the school shortly before 12:30 a.m. by a sheriff's deputy investigating a burglar alarm. A temporary plywood dividing wall separating the existing building and an addition under construction had been set on fire with what investigators suspect was gasoline.

        The damage was called minor.

House votes to create crime of identity theft
        COLUMBUS — A criminal who steals another person's identity and runs up the victim's credit bills could face up to five years in prison under legislation approved in the Ohio House.

        House members voted 84-0 Tuesday for the bill, which creates a new offense of identity theft.

        Sen. Scott Oelslager, R-Canton, introduced the bill to counter the growing problem of credit card theft on the Internet. The measure cleared the Senate in February.

        The bill would outlaw using someone else's identification with intent to commit a crime. Authorities would not have to wait for the offense, such as credit card theft, to occur before filing the charge.
