Two men were arrested by Homeland Security agents in the city this morning during a reportedly unannounced operation at an apartment complex.
Bowling Green Police Chief Brad Conner said his office learned of the incident at 8:52 a.m.
They received a call from the Green Meadows apartment complex, 214 Napoleon Road, indicating that the caller had witnessed “a couple of gentlemen” handcuffing two males and putting them in a vehicle.
The men reportedly indicated they were with Homeland Security. The caller subsequently contacted BG police seeking verification of that claim.
Conner said BG Police did confirm the arresting individuals were from Homeland Security, and that they were arresting one man who they indicated was a felon, and “another illegal immigrant.”

MILLBURY – Lake Township Fire Chief Bruce Moritz got his chance Tuesday to respond to criticisms leveled against him.
An anonymous email, reportedly submitted by a group of township firefighters, was read by a township resident at a previous meeting that Moritz did not attend. The email accused Moritz of yelling at, micro-managing and not respecting firefighters.
Moritz said he was simply "very passionate" during an episode in question. "I was getting my point across to my people."
He noted that the episode was meant to stay amongst the firefighters but someone "took it outside the room. And then someone else, and I think it's a very loud minority, seems to like to stir the pot in this community. And they came here to put this department down, and put me down."
"No one came to me to talk about these issues that were given," said Moritz, saying that the letter twisted his words.

PEMBERVILLE — Pemberville Village Council Tuesday night unanimously approved rezoning 19.46 acres on West Front Street (Ohio 105) from agricultural to single-family use.

Developer Tom Oberhouse said after the vote that he expects it will be at least a year or two before any construction begins. "As far as I know Dave Bruning is planning to put beans in the field this year."

During a public hearing before the council meeting several residents shared concerns about the rezoning. Most said they would like to see a development plan before the rezoning. There were concerns about adeqaute entrances and exits to the property, especially on two existing narrow streets.

Village officials said nothing would happen until plans met subidivision regulations and invited residents to attend meetings of the village Planning Commission when the review begins. Residents who want to be informed of the planning meetings may click the Email Us button on the village's website to get on the list. The village website is www.pemberville.org
