PIQUA — A Houston resident has been charged in connection with a Piqua burglary that took place in November.
“It was a residential burglary,” Deputy Chief Tom Steiner of the Piqua Police Department said Tuesday. The burglary took place on the 700 block of Amherst Avenue. According to Steiner, several items were stolen, including televisions, jewelry, and shoes.
Nicholas I. Cox, 30, of Houston, was charged with second-degree felony burglary over the weekend after lab results came back from the Miami Valley Crime Lab that reportedly tied Cox to the November burglary. Cox was already being held in the Miami County Jail on unrelated charges when he was charged in connection with this burglary.
Cox is continuing to be held at the Miami County Jail on $10,000 bond.
