Santa comes down the chimney, but a few days before Christmas Pike County deputies found a suspect in an air duct.
On Friday the Pike County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division developed a person of interest in an ongoing investigation. Police said Roderick V. Matthews was responsible for some threatening messages sent to the victim in the case.
Later that day, detectives and deputies went to Matthews’ home as part of the investigation, and found Matthews hiding in an air duct inside of the residence.
Matthews was arrested and charged with Cyberthreats and Intimidating a Witness. Bond was set at $50,000.00
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
