MT. GILEAD, Ohio (AP) - A sheriff’s detective in north-central Ohio says two men arrested recently in a break-in at a county animal shelter are expected to be charged with burglarizing other shelters around the state.

Twenty-nine-year-old James Blankenship and 36-year-old Corby Creech were charged last week in the Jan. 9 burglary at the Morrow County Humane Society shelter in Mt. Gilead.

Morrow County sheriff’s Det. Marissa Gibson says the men are expected to be charged in other shelter burglaries in the next couple weeks.

More than a dozen other shelters around the state were broken into since early January. In most cases, electronics, office supplies, checks and hard drives were taken.

Both are jailed with $25,000 bonds. Records don’t say if the men have attorneys.
