SANDUSKY

Sandusky police arrested two men in connection with a robbery Water Street apartment.

Marcus L. Zimmerman, 27, of Fremont, and Christopher M. Lochotzki, 25, of Oak Harbor, were arrested for the break-in two weeks ago at an apartment above Club X.

Police say their pair stole a safe with money and jewelry.

Zimmerman was rolling a marijuana cigarette at his kitchen table in his home when police caught up with him at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Sandusky police Det. Gary Wichman said.

The two dropped the safe from the apartment window to the bed of a waiting pickup truck below, police said. After breaking the safe open they attempted to get rid of it by sinking it in a pond on County Road 182 in Sandusky County.

"They assumed the pond was deeper than it was," Wichman said. "The safe didn't sink."

The property owner saw the safe and called the Sandusky County Sheriff's office. Wichman said Lochotzki planned the crime.

"The plan didn't work out too well," Wichman said.

Police are still working on recovering the jewelry and money. Both men were charged with burglary, tampering with evidence and theft.

 Since they are white , they will have to attend a substance abuse program and stay out of trouble for awhile. These charges will then disappear . Its great to be white ! Thanks Mom .

Safe or not safe that is the question?

KATELIH....

I believe your comment is so far from the truth....every bit of it.   I just knew someone would be here sooner or later throwing around the  "black". "mexican", "pink"....... card.     Still not as many here as the "Mexican" story though.     No issues in this story.     I wonder why?

Well it would absolutely suck if both were felons, which I believe both are.

 They would not have had a safe crack if they entered through the back door.
