Police detectives from Lake and Perrysburg townships planned Thursday to further interview two men who’ve been charged in connection with recent burglaries.
Frank E. Lintner, Jr., 36, and Gerald A. Dombroff, 30, both of Toledo, were charged last week in Perrysburg Municipal Court with breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
Det. Mick Lento, of the Lake Township Police Department, said the two confessed to breaking into two barns in the 26000 block of Tracy Road on Nov. 19 after being spotted by Perrysburg Township patrol officers.
Extension cords, a gas can, and vehicle radiator had been placed next to the road at one residence and a weed trimmer, leaf blower, and hedge trimmer at another residence, Det. Lento said, adding the suspects had parked their car nearby and picked up the items after they took them from the barns.
Both barns were unlocked, according to police reports.
Det. Lento said there is evidence linking the men to as many as four other breaking and entering cases in Lake Township, including those that occurred recently in the Owens Road area.
Hand and power tools. generators, and other equipment were reported stolen in those thefts along with copper and other metal.
Det. Lento said at the time the metals would likely be sold for scrap but didn’t appear to be the main target of the suspects.
He said the tools and other items weren’t showing in area pawn shops, leading him to conclude it was being stored somewhere before being moved out of the Toledo area.
A preliminary hearing for Lintner and Dombroff is scheduled for this week in Perrysburg Municipal Court.
Todd Curns, 43, Toledo, and Sandra Petsche, 28, were charged Nov. 10 with criminal trespassing, theft, possession of criminal tools, and resisting arrest at the Woodville Auto and Truck Parts yard in Lake Township.
Det. Lento said Dombroff and Lintner claimed they didn’t know Curns and Petsche.
