Couple charged in theft of baby stroller & car seat

Posted on March 16, 2018 at 10:32 AM by Laura Oldham

On March 11, 2018, officers took a theft report regarding a baby stroller and car seat taken from the back porch area of a home on Woodhill Dr. The theft was captured on another resident’s surveillance camera. Upon reviewing the video, detectives were able to identify suspects Roy L. Anderson Jr., 36, and Tresa Anderson, 41, both of Columbus, Ohio. 

Tresa Anderson voluntarily came to the police department for an interview where she admitted to her involvement. The suspects sold the items to a second hand store in Westerville.

Prior to the theft offense, the couple was knocking on doors in the area of Woodhill Dr. claiming they were looking for an item seen on the social media page, Craigslist. Detectives believe that these individuals were trying to see if residents were home in order to commit additional theft offenses.

A summons for theft has been filed on Tresa Anderson. A theft warrant has been filed for the arrest of Roy L. Anderson. He has other warrants on file for burglary and theft related offenses.
