For the second time in a week Lake Township police have charged two men in connection with burglaries on Tracy Road.
Christopher M. Miller, 19, Perrysburg, was charged Nov. 26 with receiving stolen property and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he and a juvenile were stopped by police in the 27000 block of Tracy Road where a pole barn had been burglarized, according to police reports.
The juvenile, a 17-year-old male from Walbridge, was charged with breaking and entering, possession of criminal tools, and obstructing official business.
A week earlier police in Lake and Perrysburg townships charged two other men in connection with burglaries on Tracy Road.
Frank E. Lintner, Jr., 36, and Gerald A. Dombroff, 30, both of Toledo, were charged 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.
The case against Dombroff has been bound over to the Wood County Common Pleas Court. A preliminary hearing for Lintner in Perrysburg Municipal Court was scheduled for Dec. 2.
Both barns were unlocked, according to Det. Lento, who said there is evidence linking Dombroff and Lentner to as many as four other breaking and entering cases in Lake Township in the Owens Road area.
According to police records, Andrew Dean, 23, was charged Nov. 26 with failure to comply with a police officer’ s order, criminal damage, criminal trespassing, having an open container in a vehicle, and theft.
Police said he took the beer from the Petro Truckstop and fled after they’d been called by an employee of the truckstop.
Dean’s Jeep was found in a ditch along Strail Road in Troy Township. A resident, who’d heard an alert issued by police, held the suspect at gunpoint until police and a Wood County Sheriff’s deputy arrived.
