The suspect, 53-year-old Brian Carrier, has family in Warren County, said Charles Sano, public information officer for the U.S. Marshal’s Service in Cincinnati.

“They were out there after we received several tips he was supposed to be out there,” Sano said. “As of right now, the tips have not panned out.”

However, Sano said authorities still believe Carrier is in the area. Anyone who has information on his whereabouts is urged to call Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP (7867).

FIRST REPORT
