On Tuesday, Aug. 04, 2015, shortly after 9 a.m., Russellville residents reported an attempted burglary at their home. The victim heard the subject attempting to force entry through the backdoor of the residence.
The victim provided a description of a white male, bald, with light brown facial hair and advised that the male fled the scene when he realized the home was occupied.
Further investigation led to the identification of Matthew Roche as the suspect and, shortly after, he was located at his residence by Logan County Sheriff Wallace Whittaker. Roche was transported to the Russellville Police Department and later admitted to the crime.
Roche has been lodged at the Logan County Detention Center on the charge of Burglary 2nd degree.
The Russellville Police Department was assisted by the Logan County Sheriffs Office.
Det. Samantha K. Reeser of the Russellville Police Department is handing the case.
