Aaron Paul Roberts

Deputy Sheriff Aaron Roberts drowned after his patrol car was swept into the swollen Pomme de Terre River in the area of Cabin Creek Road and Farm Road 2 at 8:30 pm.

He had responded to a 911 hangup call in the area and was returning into service when he made an emergency radio broadcast stating his vehicle had been swept off of the road in floodwaters. After an intensive search, rescue crews located his vehicle approximately 50 yards downstream and recovered Deputy Roberts' body from inside.

Deputy Roberts had served with the Greene County Sheriff's Office for one year and had previously served with the Willard Police Department. He is survived by his wife, 7-year-old daughter, and parents.
