A Bowling Green man pleaded guilty Tuesday in Wood County court to a series of seven felonies.
Brandon M. Smarszcz, 32, pleaded to four counts of receiving stolen property and three counts of theft in the court of Judge Robert Pollex. Some of the counts relate to incidents stretching back to 2009.
Smarszcz is expected to receive community control sanctions when he is sentenced on Feb. 4 at 11 a.m. All of the counts are fifth-degree felonies.
Prosecuting Attorney Aaron Lindsey discussed evidence that would have been brought at trial concerning the charges, including the January 2009, theft of a trailer belonging to Boy Scout Troop 345 from St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Bowling Green. The trailer was later found in Toledo.
Smarszcz was also implicated in the theft of a trailer in Pemberville, as well as other incidents concerning the possession of stolen credit cards, tools, golf clubs and other items, and the forging of checks.
He was additionally charged in the theft of a fish depth finder from Bass Pro Shop in Rossford, valued at over $1,000.
