In one, video cameras caught a burglar at work. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on October 25th a couple in their home on Keiser Road heard a noise downstairs, then saw someone drive away in their pickup.  The thief had taken a purse containing the keys, and a credit card...but surveillance video caught him in the act. 

He was also video recorded using the card at the Wal-Mart Speedway the next day, and then was arrested outside Cashland...still wearing the same clothes. 

For indictments for burglary, grand theft auto, and receiving stolen property, 35-year-old Justin B. Stinson of Prussia Road near US 23 could get up to 10 1/2 years and $22,500 in fines.

A woman was indicted for a Halloween high-speed chase. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, an officer tried to make a traffic stop after finding the wrong plates on a car.  Instead, the driver headed south on Paint Street onto State Route 772 - reaching speeds of 80 miles an hour and almost hitting other vehicles. 

37-year-old Shellie J. Riehle finally crashed on Liberty Hill Road near Trego Creek Road, apparently en route to her Scheffer Road home.  However, with three other occupants, she claimed she was not the driver. 

Riehle could get up to 5 years and a $10,000 fine for felony failure to comply.  

She also had a felony warrant out of Pike County at the time of the chase.
