Burglary arrests
Walbridge police expect more arrests stemming from two burglaries in the Wood County village dating back to May 2011.

Police chief Ken Frost said a resident, Dion Farrell, 203 Parklane Street, was arrested as part of an investigation with the Ottawa Hills Village Police Department.

Farrell was taken into custody at his residence and transported to the Wood County Detention Center where he was held on a $45,000 bond.

He was out on bond on similar charges in Lucas County, Chief Frost said, adding that the Walbridge burglaries occurred at a Parklane residence.

“This investigation has not yet closed as we expect more arrests in the very near future,” he said.
