Indictment made in burglaries where fridge was also raided

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The man who police say had a habit of making himself at home in the Green Township residences he broke into has been indicted by a Hamilton County grand jury.

        Lee Patchell, 24, of Price Hill faces nine counts of burglary and six counts of auto theft. He could serve 80 years if convicted on all counts.

        According to Hamilton County Prosecutor Mike Allen, the burglaries began in February and continued through the first two weeks of March.

        Mr. Allen said the burglar would routinely help himself to food, beer and whiskey in the homes; and, in one case, used the homeowner's cell phone to call a 900 sex line.

        He also had a habit of gathering up cash, credit cards and golf clubs and would steal the homeowners' cars to make his getaway, Mr. Allen said.
