DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor in Ohio says a man and woman accused of looting a tornado-damaged home have been indicted on charges including breaking and entering.
Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. says 27-year-old Joshua Chapman and 49-year-old Cynthia Gross, both of Dayton, were indicted Monday. The prosecutor’s statement said a woman stopping by her Harrison Township home last month to check on the extent of the storm damage called authorities when she saw the suspects loading her belongings into a pickup.
Deputies from the county sheriff’s department arrived at the home in suburban Dayton and arrested Chapman and Gross.
Court records don’t list an attorney for Chapman. A message seeking comment was left Tuesday for the attorney representing Gross.
Both suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Dayton.
