Fort Thomas Police investigating home break-in, owner offers $10,000 reward


Fort Thomas Police are investigating a break-in on Bivouac Avenue in Fort Thomas that occurred on Thursday, December 5. 

Brian Ward, a Fort Thomas resident originally from Owensboro, moved to the stately Fort Thomas home in March after living for five years in Crittenden.

He told Fort Thomas Matters that he was away on business when his assistant discovered the aftermath of the break-in. 

"It appears they were in the house awhile. (My assistant) said all the drawers were open and the safe was lying face down," he said.

"She believes she interrupted the robbery. There were some tools left that were used to open the safe and a substantial amount of cash (was taken). I was thinking there is no way they could have busted it but I was wrong.

Ward said that the basement door was pried open and damaged and that he is still assessing what else was taken.

“Upon arrival, officers found evidence leading to believe a forced entry burglary had occurred.  A search of the area for the suspect(s) was unsuccessful,” said Det. Adam Noe of Fort Thomas Police. “Based on the information obtained we believe this to be an isolated incident.  With that said, it is the holiday season and as always residents should be diligent in locking their homes and vehicles.”

He's offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators. 

He posted that offer on Facebook that night, which has close to 100 shares.



Fort Thomas Police are investigating the scene and chasing down leads that Ward mentions in his Facebook post.

"Was a strange truck parked around anyone’s house that afternoon? Perhaps a white or red dodge truck?"

At this time, an investigation is ongoing and headed by the Fort Thomas Police Criminal Investigation Division whom are following up on several leads and potential witnesses.  If anyone has any information that may assist investigators, please contact Campbell County Dispatch at 859-292-3622 or Det.
