Part time Lowellville policeman charged with abduction

Posted: Updated:
LOWELLVILLE, Ohio -

A part-time Lowellville police officer faces charges of abduction and unlawful restraint.

The Mahoning County Grand Jury handed up a two count indictment against 46-year-old Roger Vance.

According to the indictment, Vance used force or a threat to restrain a 40-year-old woman in late February.

The name of the alleged victim has been redacted from the indictment.

The case was investigated by the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department after Lowellville's Police Chief received the initial compliant and asked the outside agency to get involved.

Sheriff Jerry Greene says they can not make any further comment on the case at this time.

The indictment contains a notification that Vance is prohibited from possessing a firearm until the case is concluded.

If Vance is found carrying a gun, he could be charged with having a weapon under a disability.
