The Oneida County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help in finding this week's wanted person of the week from Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers. Police are looking for 39-year-old Heather A. Brower of Rome, who they say is wanted on a bench warrant and a violation of probation.

The Oneida County Court bench warrant is in regards to a Petit Larceny case, according to Investigator Sahid Karcic of the Oneida County Sheriff's Department.

Back in February of last year, Brower was arrested on a Utica City Court HOPE "No Bail" warrant, after police executed a search warrant at a home on Parry Street in Rome. Police say they found several narcotics including:

  • 4.5 ounces of methamphetamine
  • 10.8 grams of fentanyl
  • 1.4 grams of cocaine

The 2022 arrest was made by the Rome Police Department's Special Investigation Unit, Detective Division, Special Response Team, and Road Patrol which worked with the Oneida County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division in this case.
