• Nov. 24: A Hebron man may spend years paying for a 30-second mistake. Buckeye Lake Police Capt. James Hanzey said Kenneth Luke Kennison, 20, of 101 Canal Road, Apt. E2, Hebron, was apprehended Nov. 24 in connection with the Aug. 7 breaking and entering of the Subway Sandwich Shop in the Blue Heron Boardwalk shopping plaza. “We got him Wednesday night,” said Hanzey. He said this was the first arrest the Buckeye Lake Police have made using DNA evidence collected at the scene. A blood sample retrieved from the front window Kennison smashed to enter the building was sent to the state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, revealing Kennison’s identity. Police arrested him at the Jacktown Pub, where he was working. Kennison was inside the Subway shop for roughly 30 seconds where he rummaged for cash but was able to access none. A security camera recorded the incident, but the recording wasn’t clear enough to identify Kennison, who’s charged with breaking and entering, and felony vandalism. “He could go to prison for a while,” said Hanzey.
