Florence Police Department News

There is some misinformation circulating about a robbery occurring at the Huntington Bank on Houston Rd. At approximately 1145 this morning, an upset customer was completing a transaction in the drive-thru and made a statement similar to “What do I have to do, rob the bank?” The customer then parked his vehicle and entered the branch. The teller notified bank security who interpreted it as an actual robbery and police units were immediately dispatched. The customer was detained and questioned at the scene but it was determined that no robbery has occurred. He was issued a citation for Disorderly Conduct for his involvement in the incident.

The beards are coming in quickly but not nearly as quickly as the donations! Together we have raised almost $2,500 to help children in our community to win their battle against cancer at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Maybe we’ll get there, maybe we won’t, but no matter what we know that, thanks to the generosity of everyone involved, we will help make a difference in the lives of those that matter most. Thank you for your continued support in making this campaign so successful. We are truly humbled and encouraged by your hearts.

UN-BE-LIEVABLE! We started our "No-Shave November" campaign a few weeks ago with the modest goal of raising $500 in support of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Cancer Unit. Thanks to the support of our officers and the overwhelming generosity of our community we have raised almost $2,000 to date - a number that keeps growing!!!! We are amazed at the response and can't wait to present that check at the end of the month! From the bottom of our hearts we say "Thank you" to all that have donated; we couldn't be where we are without you! If you interested in donating there is still time. The program runs until the end of November! To help; follow this link: http://giving.cincinnatichildrens.org/NoShaveNovember

Shortly after 12:30 on 10/30/2018 a man walked into the 5/3 Bank at KY 18/Houston and passed the teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled in an unknown direction. Responding officers quickly flooded the area and, within minutes, Lieutenant Joe Maier spotted a suspect matching the description of the robber near Walmart. Fortunately, the suspect was taken into custody without incident and was still in possession of the stolen money. Aaron C. Arnsperger, 30, of Covington, KY, was charged with Robbery in the 2nd degree and lodged at Boone County Jail. EXCELLENT WORK TO EVERYONE INVOLVED!

WOW! In less than 2 weeks we have CRUSHED our $500 "No Shave November" fundraising goal. We have already raised over $800 and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Because of the overwhelming response, we have set our sights on a much loftier goal of $1,500! We know we can do this with everyone's continued support. Please help us get the word out for this worthy cause and let's make a difference in the lives of children in our community.

On 08/26/2018, The Florence Police Department was made aware of an individual making threats against schools in the Northern Kentucky area. Although no specific school was mentioned the threats were explicit and direct. Working closely with the Independence, KY, Police Department units located the suspect, Billy Jones, Jr, staying in an apartment on Alan Court in Florence. Officers briefly negotiated on scene with Jones until he surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody. A handgun was located inside the apartment which had been reported stolen in Campbellsburg, KY. Jones, 19, of Independence, was arrested and charged with Terroristic Threatening in the Second Degree and Receiving Stolen Property (Firearm) - both Class D Felonies.
