Huron police officers arrested two men early Tuesday morning, concluding an almost month-long investigation into a string of car entries, Huron police Chief Robert Lippert said.

Kirt Bott, 18, and Carlton Cherry, 20, were each charged with felonious theft and receiving stolen property, as well asmultiple counts of vehicle trespassing, Lippert said.

A resident called police Tuesday around 5:30 a.m. when she saw two suspicious men in dark clothes carrying backpacks in the 300 block of Berlin Road.

The men sprinted off when they saw police cruisers in the area, but officers gave chase and caught up to them near Commerce Plaza, Lippert said.

Inside their bags were several items officers believed stolen. A search of their shared Berlin Road apartment yielded numerous items reported stolen from cars in recent weeks, as well as some items not yet reported missing, Lippert said.

The men allegedly stole multiple GPS devices, loose change, even a duffle bag with a Huron High School student’s soccer equipment, Lippert said.

“They would take pretty much anything that wasn’t nailed down inside unlocked vehicles,” Lippert said.

One of the men was somewhat cooperative during questioning, while the other was tight-lipped, Lippert said.

Lippert said more than $2,000 in stolen property was located either in their bags or in their residence.

The police chief praised the resident who tipped off officers to the suspicious men. “We rely on citizens to help keep our town safe,” Lippert said.

Both men are being held in the Erie County jail on $27,500 bond.

Should white people protest that the whites are being targeted like the gangsters in Sandusky? Nope, throw these bums in prison.

UNLOCKED VEHICLES. Secure your belongings, sheeple. Assuming 95% of cars in Huron have keyless entry, it's not asking much for you to push the 'lock' button on the door when you get out, and the 'unlock' button on the key fob when you want to get back in. While you might view this as a minor inconvenience, it saves wasting the time of the police department to report the unspecified amount of center-console change and cheap stand-alone GPS navigation unit that are now missing because you can't be bothered to lock your doors.

Right, because crime is the victim's fault.

I recieved something from the Huron police just last week warning people about this. Kudos to the Huron police --- didn't take them long to get the little crooks.

The Huron Police aren't doing jack but acting on call ins from Huron citizens and recovering some of the stolen items....The Neighborhood watches are coming together catching these punks. The Section 8 housing is attracting some real trash and they are breaking into houses and cars. Attention Andy White....this trash needs to be dealt with !

Andy won't do anything. Socialists love scumbags in the community.
