Slippery suspect apprehended

Roger Dale Barber
MCARTHUR – A plan hatched by Vinton County Sheriff’s Deputies netted an Albany man who had eluded arrest on several outstanding warrants including one for alleged aggravated drug possession.

According to a Vinton County Sheriff’s Office media release, Roger Dale Barber, 23, was apprehended June 2. Deputies caught up with Barber in an undercover sting after past attempts to arrest Barber failed. Part of the plan relied on catching Barber as he returned to his residence. When Barber arrived deputies were able to surround his vehicle preventing his escape.

Barber was arrested without incident and was transferred to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. Held on a $175,000 cash or surety bond, Barber faces additional charges violating probation and drug cultivation. A preliminary hearing date has not yet been released.
