Erie County sheriff’s deputies obtained arrest warrants for Kenneth M. Kollen, 23, of the 1900 block of Claus Road, Vermilion, and his alleged accomplice, Daniel K. Carey, 31, of Amherst.
Kollen allegedly told a friend he’s hiding from the police, said Jared Oliver, chief deputy.
Anyone with information about the pair is asked to call 419-627-7553, Oliver said.
An offense report from the sheriff’s office says Sharon Kollen, 69, 3600 block of Cleveland Road E. in Huron, left the house at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday to run errands. When she got home at about 4 p.m. Tuesday, she encountered her grandson, Kenneth, and another man, who were backing out of the driveway in a bronzecolored Ford Explorer and appeared to be in a hurry.
Kenneth told her to move her car so they could leave and even said they’d drive around her on the grass if she didn’t move. She moved, and they left.
Sharon immediately discovered the back door had been forced open, so she called her son, David Kollen, as well as the sheriff’s office. It was then discovered that a laptop and an Xbox gaming system had been stolen.
David told police his son has been addicted to heroin for about five years, is wanted on theft complaints and has a criminal record, according to the report.
