WAUSEON – A Perrysburg man was arrested in Fulton County Monday and is believed to be involved in the theft of grave markers in Lucas County.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office reports that James K. Long, 49, was arrested stemming from a Friday incident in which Long was the driver of a stolen vehicle that fled from a Fulton County deputy.
Long’s passenger, Bethany S. Miller, 35, was arrested at the scene after she fled into a nearby cornfield.
Long was also being investigated for the thefts of veteran grave markers from an area cemetery in Lucas County.
Long was identified as a suspect with the help of the proprietors of a Delta scrap business, and all of the grave markers were recovered intact and will be returned.
Long and Miller are currently incarcerated at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, Stryker.
Long is facing two counts of receiving stolen property and fleeing or eluding.
Miller is facing charges of receiving stolen property and possessing drug abuse instruments.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the search for the suspects by Swanton, Delta and Wauseon Police departments, Life Flight, and the Wauseon Fire Department.
