MIAMI TWP., Ohio (WDTN) - Police in Miami Township are looking for a home invasion suspect.
Investigators are actively searching for David Croley, 34 and police think he might be responsible for seven burglaries.
Police say his latest attempt was in the 2700 block of Flowerstone Drive Tuesday. Officers say the homeowner caught Croley trying to break into the back door with a screwdriver.
"When one of the residents opened the sliding door to ask what he was doing, the subject charged at him with a screwdriver raised. They slammed the door in his face just in time, he hit the door with the screwdriver a couple times trying to break in and then he fled the scene," said Det. Kevin Landis, Miami Township Police Department.
Another burglary on Latonia Drive had similar circumstances. The suspect used a screwdriver in that crime and also stole the victim's car.
Police believe Croley is driving a gold, two door Saturn with an Ohio license plate AUV 3826.
Investigators urge you not to approach the suspect, but call police.
"He's far more aggressive than the average burglar. Most burglars, they're confronted by a homeowner, they run the other way. This guy, will attack and threaten the homeowner in order to continue the burglary," said Landis. "We believe that he is on drugs and definitely poses a risk to the public."
Call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867 if you have information about Croley's whereabouts.
