Corey Fletcher, 25, of Sandusky, was charged with aggravated menacing, burglary, theft and disorderly conduct intoxicated.

James Chutes, 30, called Sandusky police at about 2 a.m. and said he had an intruder pinned to the ground. When officers showed up to the 1500 block of N. Forest Drive, Chutes had let the suspect go.

Officers fanned out and caught Fletcher on Johnson Street.

Chutes said he answered the door that morning and a man, later identified as Fletcher, shoved his way inside and started shouting, the report said.

A scuffle ensued, with Chutes tackling the intruder and holding him to the ground for about 10 minutes before eventually letting him go. Chutes’ 4-year-old daughter was in the house during the incident, the report said.   

Fletcher is being held in the Erie County jail without bond.



Mr. chutes is very brave! Thank you Mr. chutes for getting another criminal off of the streets, and thank you spd for hunting him down!!


jealous boyfriend = weak man...typical


With the number of deaths in Sandusky now at 7 for the year the prosecutor must take these death threats seriously. No more waiting until another citizen dies for the court system to take control.

At this present time, approximately 1 in every 3000 people in Sandusky will die from a violent crime.

Wake up Erie County Courts before more die while you cut some more deals.


Obviously there are some details missing. These comments are always hilarious.
