Out-of-state man arrested for theft

Sunday, October 19, 2008

A Wichita, Kan., man arrested for theft Saturday morning by members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department is also wanted for aggravated robbery charges in Ohio.

According to a press release by the CCSD, Dep. Josh Krause was responding to a vehicle accident report around 8:17 a.m., Saturday, when he observed a black male and a white female removing items from a 2005 Mercedes Benz and putting them into another vehicle on State Road 59 in an area under an Interstate-70 overpass.

A check of the vehicle's license plate determined the vehicle was registered as stolen from Columbus, Ohio.

Both suspects were taken into custody for questioning during the investigation.

Local officials contacted Bexley Police Department officials in Ohio about the case. It was discovered that the vehicle belonged to an unidentified elderly female teacher who recently was allegedly attacked by a black male in her office on a college campus in Columbus, Ohio. She said the attacker took her car keys and stole her Mercedes Benz from a parking garage.

The unidentified female was questioned and later released.

The male was identified as Justin Young, 20, and was booked into the Clay County Justice Center for possession of stolen property. The Bexley Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for Young on the aggravated robbery charge in their jurisdiction.

During the investigation, officials discovered Young was also on parole for battery on a juvenile probation officer in Ohio.

Incarcerated on a $7,000 cash bond, jail officials confirmed Young would probably remain incarcerated at the facility until he appears in court here for the local charges and then be sent to Ohio.

The case is being reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office and the Bexley Police Department is continuing their investigation.
