Three Toledo men have been indicted for theft charges including two as co-defendants charged with aggravated theft of scrap metal.
Gary G. Wymer Jr., 27, and William L. Blasingim, 39, both of Toledo, are co-defendants
The indictments indicate theft activity between Oct. 10 and Dec. 23 last year when scrap metal was stolen from multiple locations. The value of the stolen metal is listed at more than $150,000, but less than $750,000. As indicted the crimes are third-degree felonies.
According to court records, Jose M. Escobar Jr., 28, of Toledo, is alleged to have stolen nearly $8,000 worth of equipment from Black Swamp Equipment in Perrysburg. The stolen items include two chain saws, two additional quick cut saws, a 2-man post hole auger, a roto hammer, skid loader forks, a transit level, an electric breaker, as well as various additional parts for that breaker. Records indicate he rented the equipment from the business and never returned it. Court records indicate he either pawned or sold all of the items.
In addition to these and those indictments previously announced from the May 1 grand jury session, Elissa Taylor, 24, of Bowling Green, was indicted for forgery in regard to several stolen checks made payable to her totaling approximately $6,000 on or about March 6.
Other people indicted include:

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Brittanie N. Hurst, 26, of Northwood, for receiving stolen property in regard to a stolen credit card. A bill of information was also issued for her co-defendant Brian Lavell Thompson of Toledo, also for receiving stolen property. His court records indicate the same victim with the Ohio Direction card being used a few days earlier.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Kristoffer Michael Moore, 29, of Detroit and listed in custody at the Wood County jail, for theft of a computer from Best Buy in Perrysburg and failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer.
