Jackson, Williams and Kinney followed Judge Dlott and Mr. Chesley from a Kenwood restaurant, targeting their luxury car, to their Indian Hill residence on the evening of December 4th.

The three forced entry into the home late in the evening. They confronted Judge Dlott and Mr. Chesley and ordered them around the house at gunpoint while they were stealing items from the home.

During the course of the burglary, Mr. Chesley was pushed down a small flight of steps and suffered injury. 

Judge Dlott and Mr. Chesley were able to flee from the home and Judge Dlott ran to a neighbor’s home to call 911.

The Indian Hill Rangers responded to the scene.  As Indian Hill was responding to the residence, Madeira Police Officer Zazyeki made a traffic stop on Dawson and Eleck when a 2015 Honda Civic ran the stop sign. Jackson was driving the car, which was registered to him, and Williams and Kinney were passengers.  Officer Zazyeki noticed that the trunk of the vehicle was open and could see fur coats and other items in the trunk.  Numerous items stolen from the Chesley residence were in the car as well as items taken in other burglary offenses.  Additional charges could be pending.

After the three were arrested and placed in the Madeira police car, Kinney kicked out a car window and tried to escape.  He was quickly captured by Madeira police.

Prosecutor Deters commented, “Short of murder and rape, this is as serious a case as we get.  People who are willing to enter someone else’s home with guns, knowing full well that the homeowners are present, and terrorize and rob the innocent homeowners are some of the most dangerous types of criminals we encounter.

A debt of gratitude goes to the Madeira and Indian Hill Police Departments for the excellent police work they did on this case and the amazingly quick arrest of three armed and dangerous criminals.”

The three will be arraigned on Monday, December 14th at 9:00 a.m. in front of Judge Megan Shanahan in the Hamilton County Courthouse room 560.
