A Sylvania man whose 2012 conviction in a theft ring case was overturned last month has been granted bond by a Wood County judge.
Herbie Betz, 43, appeared in the courtroom of Judge Robert Pollex Tuesday.
Bond was set at $50,000, no 10 percent allowed.
Betz has served 20 months of an eight-year sentence after his conviction on eight felony counts, including engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, money laundering, illegal use of food stamps, and receiving stolen property.
His wife, Michele, 45, was sentenced to five years in prison, and his mother, Thelma Fowler, 71, was sentenced to eight years. The three were judged to be ring leaders of a crime ring which reportedly operated in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, and involved 70 individuals.

Bowling Green has stepped up enforcement of its 24 hour parking rule on city streets.

If your vehicle has been parked on a city street for more than 24 hours and was marked by Parking Enforcement Wednesday, the vehicle will be ticketed and towed today commencing at 10:30 a.m.

This enforcement is being done in order to clear the large amounts of snow that remains on streets throughout the city. Wednesday BGPD Parking Enforcement marked over 100 vehicles for the 24 hour violation and it was clear that many had not moved in several days.

This effort will begin in the numbered streets area of the Second Ward and will continue until all city streets have been cleared.

 
BG police warn of gift card scam PDF Print E-mail

On Tuesday, the Bowling Green Police Division took a fraud report involving a local business. The business received a call from a person identifying themselves as Don Richardson from InComm, a business that processes gift and phone card transactions.
The person asked that the clerk activate a certain type of card for a system test. When the clerk stated they didn't have that type of card, the person said his inventory list showed they should have 13 in stock. The clerk believed the man was legitimate because he acted as if he had an inventory listing. He then had the clerk try two Verizon phone cards, which the clerk did have, and she activated them. The man then hung up. The clerk called InComm suspecting that the call was a fraud and it was confirmed that it was.
The police state that businesses should be wary of conducting business transactions over the phone without verifying name and callback information. Businesses should have procedures in place to limit scammers and should train employees in how to deal with suspicious calls.
