The Scioto County Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the name of a company that was possibly the victim of the theft of a “substantial amount of money.” All they are saying is that Stacey E. Renison, 33, of Portsmouth, has been charged with one count of theft; a felony of the fourth degree.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said his office received a call from a South Webster business reporting a theft of money on Oct. 8, 2015. Detectives met with the owners of the business which resulted in a report being filed to start an investigation. During the investigation detectives learned that a substantial amount of money had been taken over a period of three years.
Donini said it is an ongoing investigation that could result in more charges being presented to the Scioto County grand jury at a later date.
When the Daily Times inquired as to the name of the business, it was informed that the name of the business is not being released. The Times question as to whether Renison was an employee of that company or not went unanswered.
Renison was held on a $5,000 bond pending her appearance in Portsmouth Municipal Court on Thursday.
Donini said anyone with any information concerning this theft is being requested to contact detective Jodi Conkel at 740-351-1091. He said all calls will remain anonymous.
