DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The US Marshals SOFAST Task Force and the Dayton Police Department got more than they went after Thursday.

Officers got a tip that a wanted woman was hanging out at 133 Brown Street. When they went looking for Bonnie Ritchie, they found drugs and paraphernalia inside the filthy house.

They did not find Ritchie, but they did have the house declared a nuisance property and closed it up.

Police say this is the second time the house was condemned.

Ritchie is wanted for failing to go to court to face charges that she stole a guide dog from a Dayton woman’s yard.

Only 2 NEWS was there for the bust.
