Reward is being offered for escaped fugitive

A reward is being offered as the hunt for Clermont County escaped fugitive Christopher Crosby continues.

Crosby, 25, has been on the run since last month after failing to appear for a sentencing hearing for several burglaries and a Batavia Township home invasion in 2007.

Crosby, who was convicted of forcing himself into a home with a woman and her three children, and stealing guns, appears to have been eluding county authorities by riding on stolen horses (three horses total).

He has allegedly been spotted several times in the Laurel area of the county, but that is unconfirmed.
