What to do if you suspect a natural gas leak

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 14:04

KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A gas leak is being blamed for a house explosion in Kettering late Tuesday night.

The explosion at the home in the 400 block of Pamela Sue Drive sent three people to the hospital.

According to Vectren, there are signs that can let you know if a natural gas leak is happening where you live. Vectren adds an odor to natural gas that smells like rotten eggs or sulfur to make detecting a leak easier. Other signs of an outdoor gas leak include patches of dead grass, blowing dirt, bubbling water or a hissing sound.

If you suspect a gas leak in your home or business, leave immediately. Do not use the phone or cell phone inside the building. Do not touch any lights, appliances or electronic devices. Do not light matches. Do not open or close windows. Do not start a vehicle.

Contact Vectren at 1-800-227-1376.

Vectren has more tips on what to do if you think there’s a gas leak outside of your home or business.

Record raised during “Day of Giving” at Jersey Mike’s, proceeds benefits URS

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:52

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The numbers are in and it was a record year for the “Day of Giving” at Jersey Mike’s in Dayton.

The submarine sandwich chain raised $17,256 dollars for the United Rehabilitation Services of Greater Dayton on Wednesday.

Every dollar of Wednesday’s sales at three local Jersey Mike’s locations went toward benefiting URS.

The center helps children and adults with disabilities.

“We’ve chosen URS because the work they do with children and adults with disabilities in the Miami Valley is just incredible,” said Ted Tolliver of Jersey Mike’s Subs. “These guys take the people who nobody else can take care of, take the cases nobody else will do, and they do it.”

It’s part of the chain’s annual Day of Giving. The three participating locations are on Far Hills Ave. in Centerville, Miamisburg-Centerville Rd. in Dayton and Pentagon Blvd. in Beavercreek. They’re also accepting donations for URS all month long.

During Last year’s “Day of Giving”, Jersey Mike’s raised more that $11,000 dollars for the organization.

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:40

(NBC News) Three storm chasers were killed in a car accident in West Texas Tuesday.

The storm chasers were driving toward a storm when officials say a black Suburban ran a stop sign at an intersection and collided with a black Jeep.

The three occupants in the two vehicles were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials have identified the deceased as 57-year-old Kelley Williamson, 55-year-old Randall Yarnall, and 25-year-old Corbin Jaeger.

Officials say the accident was not weather related and the crash is under investigation.

Williamson and Yarnall were contractors for the Weather Channel, which is partly owned by NBCUniversal.

Sheriff: Armed robbery suspect drowns fleeing Guernsey Co. Deputies

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:27

BYESVILLE, OH (WCMH) — The Guernsey County Sheriff says the body of a man wanted in an armed robbery has been recovered after he ran from deputies March 2.

According to Guernsey County Sheriff Jeffrey Paden, dispatchers received a call at about 7pm, Tuesday on the reports of a possible body found stuck in a tree in a creek near Byesville Park.

Deputies responded to the scene and confirmed that it was the body of Mark E. Cutlip, 24, of Cambridge.

Paden says Cutlip was a suspect in an armed robbery that took place March 1, where the victim reported money, a knife, and a cellular telephone were taken from him after being pistol whipped.

On March 2, a Guernsey County Deputy stopped a vehicle, which Cutlip was reportedly a passenger, in the area of S. Fourth and Main streets in Byesville. After being ordered to exit the vehicle, deputies say Cutlip ran from officers, and eluded capture.

“We believe he entered the flood water on the night of the pursuit and didn’t realize where he was in relation to the creek,” Paden released on the sheriff’s office Facebook page. “It is believed he drown(ed) in the water and his body was not found until yesterday.”

An autopsy was ordered at the Licking County Coroner’s Office to determine the official cause of death.

Cutlip was also considered a suspect in a theft incident in at a pharmacy in Cambridge, February 22.

Trump vows to step up efforts to combat drug addiction

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:07

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is vowing to step up efforts to combat the nation’s addiction crisis.

Trump convened an emotional roundtable Wednesday attended by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, members of his cabinet, law enforcement chiefs and recovering addicts. It was the first public event tied to the launch of a new addiction commission that Trump asked Christie, a longtime friend and formal rival, to chair.

Trump listened intently as attendees shared their harrowing stories about addiction and recovery. He told a woman who lost her son to an overdose that he did not die in vain.

Christie, who has made the issue of addiction a centerpiece of his own administration, chaired Trump’s presidential transition team before he was unceremoniously replaced by incoming Vice President Mike Pence.

Christie spoke extensively about the issue during his own presidential bid and has dedicated his final year in office to addressing the drug crisis. Last month, he signed legislation that limits first-time opioid prescriptions to five days’ worth of drugs and requires state-regulated health insurers to cover at least six months of substance abuse treatment.

Christie told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday that he has “no interest in having a permanent role” in the Trump administration at this time, but that the president asked him to spearhead efforts to combat opioid and drug abuse as he completes his term as governor.

“He asked me to help with this and I’m going to,” Christie said. “It’s an issue that I care about a lot in New Jersey and for the country and so the president asked me to do this and I was happy to.”

Christie has been friends with Trump for years and has been working behind the scenes with the White House on the issue for months, discussing it with aides including Kellyanne Conway, a fellow New Jersey native, and the president. The commission is being rolled out as part of a new office led by Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner, whose father Christie prosecuted in his former role as U.S. attorney.

Christie, who had lunch with Kushner Tuesday as part of his discussions about the administration’s policy, downplayed reports of tensions between the two.

“It was great,” Christie said. “We are talking about the opioid issue because it’s one of the things that’s going to be overseen out of his department and so we had a good lunch and a good opportunity to lay out what we need to do and what our goals are.”

Christie’s history with drug policy dates to his first elected position in county government more than 20 years ago. The issue became personal more than a decade later, when one of Christie’s best friends from law school developed an addiction to prescription drugs and died of an overdose in a New Jersey motel.

Christie’s position leading the commission is a volunteer one, and he has long maintained that he plans to complete his term as governor before moving to the private sector. Nonetheless, people close to him say that he is open to potentially joining the administration once his term ends.

Christie’s last visit to the White House stoked speculation. After he and his wife, Mary Pat, had lunch with Trump in February, Christie was bombarded with questions at home about his intentions.

“Let me be very clear, we did not get into any discussion of me joining the current administration in some type of drug abuse role, some type of czar or God forbid surgeon general,” he said then.

The focus on the drug issue also gives Christie a chance to try to move past negative headlines that have helped fuel his unpopularity in New Jersey.

As Christie is appearing at the White House, two former aides are being sentenced for their roles in the 2013 George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal. Bill Baroni was sentenced to two years in prison on Wednesday, while co-defendant Bridget Kelly was awaiting sentencing after they were convicted last November on counts including wire fraud, conspiracy and misusing the bridge for improper purposes.

The scandal derailed Christie’s presidential aspirations and may have cost him a chance to be then-GOP nominee Trump’s running mate — a role Christie openly courted. He was later named chair of Trump’s transition effort, but was booted after Trump won the election due to internal disagreements about the transition’s direction.

Several of Christie’s former aides now work in the Trump administration.

FDA approves 1st drug for aggressive multiple sclerosis

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 13:00

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — U.S. regulators have approved the first drug for an aggressive kind of multiple sclerosis that steadily reduces coordination and the ability to walk.

The Food and Drug Administration approved Ocrevus late Tuesday after a large study found it slowed progression of the neurological disease and reduced symptoms.

While there are more than a dozen treatments for the most common form of MS, there’s been nothing specifically for people with the type called primary progressive MS. That type of MS is relatively rare, affecting about 50,000 Americans.

The drug was also approved for relapsing forms of MS, which progress more slowly.

It’s given intravenously every six months. The drug was developed by Genentech, part of Swiss drugmaker the Roche Group. Genentech, based in South San Francisco, California, said the initial list price without insurance will be $65,000 a year.

In primary progressive MS, the disease’s course varies among patients, but symptoms gradually worsen from the start and there usually are no periods when symptoms subside. Most of the estimated 400,000 Americans with MS have the relapsing-remitting type, in which symptoms can wane for months, even years, between flare-ups.

Symptoms are caused by the immune system attacking the fatty coverings on nerves in the brain and spinal cord that protect them, much like insulation on electrical wiring. As the coverings deteriorate, nerve “messages” aren’t properly transmitted, disrupting movement and muscle control.

For patients with primary progressive MS, life span on average is shortened by six years, said Dr. Fred Lublin, director of the MS center at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City.

Since 1993, 14 drugs have been approved to slow the most common form of MS, but everything tested against primary progressive MS failed until now, said Lublin, a consultant to Genentech who was on the committee overseeing the study.

“This therapy not only provides another treatment option for those with relapsing MS, but for the first time provides an approved therapy for those with primary progressive MS,” Dr. Billy Dunn, director of the FDA’s Division of Neurology Products, said in a statement.

In the study testing Ocrevus for primary progressive MS, which involved 732 patients, Ocrevus had a “modest but definite slowing effect on the rate at which people develop disabilities,” said Lublin.

Compared to study participants getting dummy infusions, patients given Ocrevus infusions had slower declines in walking ability and slower disability progression over nearly 2 ½ years. The Ocrevus group also had fewer new brain-damaging lesions develop but slightly higher rates of certain side effects, including upper respiratory tract infections and tumors developing in various parts of the body.

The drug was also tested in two large studies involving 1,656 patients as a treatment for relapsing forms of MS. In those 96-week studies, patients given Ocrevus had lower relapse rates and reduced worsening of disability compared to participants given Rebif, a standard drug for relapsing MS, according to the FDA.

Ocrevus will be available in the U.S. within two weeks, Genentech said, noting the average price of MS medicines has quadrupled over the past 12 years. As a “first step” in reversing that trend, the company said, it priced Ocrevus 25 percent below Rebif’s list price.

Ref target of death threats after Kentucky loss

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 12:55

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Referee John Higgins of Omaha has contacted law enforcement to report he’s received death threats after Kentucky’s loss to North Carolina in the NCAA South Regional final.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Higgins reported threats on his home phone, which has an unlisted number, and on the office phone for his roofing company. The person requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The Facebook page for Higgins’ roofing company also was inundated with negative comments about Higgins and the quality of his company’s work.

In a statement Wednesday, the Kentucky athletic department says it encourages fans to demonstrate good sportsmanship and discourages other kind of behavior.

Messages were left for Omaha police and Kentucky State Police.

AP ranks UD basketball among the top 100 teams off all-time

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 12:25

(AP) — The University of Dayton is listed among the top 100 programs in college basketball history by the Associated Press.

The Flyers rank 76th in the AP’s top 100, making UD one of four programs from the state of Ohio to appear in the rankings.

The AP has been ranking the best teams in college basketball since January 1949. Over 68 years and more than 1,100 polls, a total of 200 schools have been ranked and 59 of them have been ranked No. 1 (Saint Louis was the first No. 1).

To determine the all-time Top 100, the AP formula counted poll appearances (one point each) to mark consistency and No. 1 rankings (two points each) to acknowledge elite programs. Keep in mind that AP doesn’t release a poll after the NCAA Tournament, so eventual national champions are not factored into these rankings. Instead, this lists focuses more on those programs that consistently appear in the poll and/or at the top during the regular seasons.

The poll started with 20 teams ranked each week until it was reduced to just the Top 10 midway through the 1960-1961 season. It then returned to a Top 20 format for the 1968-69 season. The poll expanded to 25 teams starting with the 1989-1990 and it has remained that size since then. The first preseason poll was introduced at the start of the 1961-1962 season.

Based on the AP’s formula, Kentucky is ranked as the top team of all time, ahead of North Carolina, Duke, UCLA and Kansas.

Cincinnati is the top-rated team from Ohio, coming in 10th. Ohio State is 12th. Xavier is ranked 53rd ahead of UD at 76.

Ohio legislature considers updating laws on fentanyl, closing red light loophole

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 12:08

Fentanyl Bill

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) –  The Ohio Senate will consider a bill Wednesday that will increase penalties for drug offenses when fentanyl is involved.

Senate Bill 1 will increase penalties for drug trafficking, drug possession and other crimes when the drug involved is fentanyl-related.

Lawmakers say the bill will more appropriately reflect the potency of fentanyl which is 50-100 times more potent than morphine.

The bill will be considered in an afternoon session.

You can read the full bill by clicking the image.

Also Wednesday, the Ohio Senate will consider a bill intended to clarify laws recently passed to help bicycle riders in Ohio.

House Bill 9

House Bill 9 specifies that only bicycles may proceed through a red light after stopping if the pavement detector does not trigger a signal change. The previous version of the bill did not specify bicycles only, which would technically allow anyone to go through a red light,.

You can read that full bill by clicking the image.

Former Greeneview standout Bradds earns All-Star invite

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 11:48

PHOENIX, Arizona (WDTN) — Belmont University men’s basketball senior Evan Bradds (Jamestown, Ohio) has been selected to participate in the 2017 Reese’s College All-Star Game as part of Final Four festivities.

The game will tip at 5:30 p.m. CT at the University of Phoenix Stadium and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

Belmont senior Evan Bradds/Belmont University Athletics

For Bradds, it will be one final opportunity to represent Belmont University on the college hardwood, culminating a remarkable four years.

A two-time Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention and two-time CoSIDA Academic All-America® selection, Bradds led Belmont to 91 victories and four consecutive conference championships.

The 6-7 forward set Belmont’s NCAA Division I era career scoring record (1,921 points) and ranks fourth all-time in college basketball history in field goal percentage (.667).

He tallied 98 double figure scoring games, including 30 of his final 31 games.

Bradds, two-time All-District by the NABC and USBWA, is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award and Julius Erving Award.

Coincidentally, the opposing head coach in Bradds’ final game at Belmont – Georgia Tech head coach Josh Pastner – will serve as Bradds’ coach in the all-star game.

The Reese’s College All-Star Game, hosted by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), annually features 20 of the top seniors in college basketball and is one of the featured events leading up to the games at the Final Four. Attendance is free for all NABC Convention registrants and guests.

Bradds joins recent Belmont University men’s basketball student-athletes to take part in Final Four weekend events (Jeff Laidig (’16), Ian Clark (’13), Mick Hedgepeth (’12), Andy Wicke (’09)).

3 storm chasers die in crash during Southern Plains storms

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 11:28

SPUR, Texas (AP) — Storms that bore down on Southern Plains states brought powerful winds that upended a tractor-trailer on an Oklahoma interstate, killing the driver, while three storm chasers died in a collision as they raced toward a tornado-warned storm in West Texas, authorities said.

The storms that struck Texas and Oklahoma late Tuesday brought tornadoes, tennis ball-sized hail and powerful winds, but no widespread damage was reported. It’s just the beginning of what’s expected to be a stormy week in Tornado Alley and in parts of the South.

In Oklahoma, the truck driver was killed after strong winds pushed his rig off the interstate in El Reno, outside Oklahoma City, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Forecasters confirmed a 95 mph (150 kph) wind gust in the area when the crash occurred.

In Texas, the three storm chasers — including two who were contractors for The Weather Channel — were killed in a collision at a remote intersection near the town of Spur, about 55 miles (90 kilometers) southeast of Lubbock.

The channel said in a statement that Kelley Williamson and Randy Yarnall were “beloved members of the weather community” who had worked as contractors for the channel. The Texas Department of Public Safety said the two died Tuesday along with another storm chaser, 25-year-old Corbin Lee Jaeger of Peoria, Arizona.

Williamson and Yarnall were both from Cassville, Missouri.

Department of Public Safety Sgt. John Gonzalez says a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Williamson ran a stop sign and slammed into a Jeep driven by Jaeger. Yarnall was a passenger in the Suburban. All three were killed instantly. Tornadoes had been reported nearby at the time of the crash and heavy rain had been reported in the area.

Erotic stories found in professor’s research for Ohio agency

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 11:21

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Bowling Green State University has suspended a construction management professor after erotic stories were included in computer files he returned to the Ohio Department of Transportation after a research project for the agency.

The Ohio Inspector General’s Office says he violated university policy with the material on his work computer, but federal authorities determined it didn’t amount to a crime. A local prosecutor is reviewing the matter.

Investigators say he indicated he didn’t write the sexually explicit stories involving adults, children, and animals, but sometimes read them for entertainment. He told investigators he wasn’t acting illegally and wasn’t sure how the stories ended up in the research project files.

The Blade in Toledo reports the university says it’s reviewing the findings and isn’t commenting while an internal investigation is pending.

It’s over: Britain files for divorce from the European Union

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 11:13

LONDON (AP) — The United Kingdom filed for divorce from the European Union on Wednesday, overturning four decades of integration with its neighbors, demolishing the notion that EU expansion is inevitable and shaking the foundations of a bloc that is facing challenges to its identity and its place in the world.

Britain’s top envoy to the EU, Tim Barrow, hand-delivered a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk formally triggering a two-year countdown to the final split.

“Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people,” Prime Minister Theresa May told lawmakers in the House of Commons, adding, “This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back.”

There is “no reason to pretend this is a happy day,” Tusk told reporters, emphasizing that the priority now is to minimize costs for EU citizens and member states.

To Britain, he said: “We already miss you.”

For Britons who voted 52 to 48 percent to leave the bloc in a referendum nine months ago, it was a time for celebration.

“I voted for Brexit and today is the day that vote starts to count,” said Charles Goodacre, a former taxi driver, in the northern England city of Sunderland. “Things have been bad round here for a while and we needed a change.”

Former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, who campaigned for years to take Brexit from fringe cause to reality, said Britain had passed “the point of no return.”

“I can still, to be honest with you, scarcely believe today has come,” he said.

Others worried Britain was taking a leap in the dark.

“No one knows. No one knows how this is going to go,” said Nicola Gibson, who works in London’s financial district. “It’s a gamble, it’s a risk. It’s a bit like Trump. It’s such an uncertain place at the moment.”

Those who campaigned for Britain to stay in the EU say they will now fight for a divorce settlement that preserves what they see as key benefits of EU membership, including free trade in goods and services and the right to live and work anywhere in the bloc.

May’s six-page letter to Tusk was polite and conciliatory, stressing that Britons want to remain “committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.”

She said the two sides should “engage with one another constructively and respectfully, in a spirit of sincere cooperation.”

But there was a hint of steel in May’s assertion that without a good deal, “our cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened.” That could be seen by some in Europe as a threat to withdraw British security cooperation if the U.K. does not get its way.

The loss of a major member is destabilizing for the EU, which is battling to contain a tide of nationalist and populist sentiment and faces unprecedented antipathy from the new resident of the White House.

Speaking in Berlin. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany and other EU states “certainly did not wish for this day, because we are losing a strong and important member state.”

But, she added: “The European Union is a historically unique success story. It remains one even after Britain’s withdrawal. We will take care of that.”

The split is even more tumultuous for Britain. For all the U.K. government’s confident talk of forging a close and friendly new relationship with its neighbors, it cannot be sure whether businesses will freely be able to trade, students to study abroad or pensioners to retire with ease in other EU states. Those things have become part of life since the U.K. joined what was then called the European Economic Community in 1973.

The trigger for all the economic and constitutional uncertainty is Article 50, a previously obscure clause of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty that allows a member state to withdraw.

The two sides now have until March 2019 to agree on a divorce settlement and — if possible — establish a new relationship between Britain, the world’s fifth-largest economy, and the EU, a vast single market taking in half a billion people.

Tusk said he will respond by Friday with draft negotiating guidelines for the remaining 27 member states to consider. They’ll meet April 29 to finalize their platform.

Talks between the EU’s chief negotiator, French diplomat Michel Barnier, and his British counterpart, Brexit Secretary David Davis, are likely to start in the second half of May.

As in many divorces, the first area of conflict is likely to be money. The EU wants Britain to pay a hefty bill — Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the EU’s executive Commission, put it at around 50 billion euros ($63 billion) — to cover pension liabilities for EU staff and other commitments the U.K. has agreed to.

Britain acknowledges it will have to pay something, but is sure to quibble over the size of the tab.

Negotiations will also soon hit a major contraction: Britain wants “frictionless” free trade, but says it will restore control of immigration, ending the right of EU citizens to live and work in Britain. The EU says Britain can’t have full access to the single market if it doesn’t accept free movement, one of the bloc’s key principles.

Both Britain and the EU say a top priority will be guaranteeing the rights of 3 million EU citizens living in Britain, and 1 million Britons living elsewhere in the bloc.

The two sides also appear to disagree on how the talks will unfold. EU officials say the divorce terms must be settled before negotiators can turn to the U.K.’s future relationship with the bloc, while Britain wants the two things discussed simultaneously.

The U.K. has raised the prospect it could walk away without a deal if talks falter, though May said in her letter that both sides should “work hard to avoid that outcome.”

Brexit has profound implications for Britain’s economy, society and even unity. The divisive decision to leave the EU has given new impetus to the drive for Scottish independence, and undermined the foundations of Northern Ireland’s peace settlement.

It’s also a major blow to the EU, after decades of expansion, to lose one of its largest members. Anti-EU populists including French far-right leader Marine Le Pen hope the impulses that drove Britain to turn its back on the EU will be repeated across the continent.

Many Britons who voted to leave were seeking to regain control of migration. That is what worries some on the other side, because many British businesses rely on European workers.

Piotr Wierzbicki, a Polish engineer flying to London from Warsaw airport, said the British “shot themselves in the foot” by voting to leave the EU, and predicted it would be harder for Europeans to travel to and from the U.K.

“It will be bad for their economy and it will be bad for the EU,” he said.

13-year-old overdoses on heroin in Dayton, father arrested

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 10:53

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton father is behind bars after his 13-year-old son reportedly overdosed on heroin.

According to a police report on the incident, the father and another man brought the teenager to a fire station on South Broadway Tuesday night. The boy was unconscious when they arrived.

Medics believe the boy was suffering from a heroin overdose. They administered overdose antidote Narcan. The boy did not respond. They took him to Miami Valley Hospital. We’re working to learn his condition.

One of the men told police the boy’s father was on drugs, and the boy “got into his stuff” at a garage next door to the fire station.

The boy’s father was arrested on endangering children charges. He’s in Montgomery County Jail. According to the jail website, the father is due in court Thursday.

Troy police gathering information for review of Monday’s pursuit

WDTN News - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 10:34

TROY, Ohio (WDTN) – The Troy police investigation into a pursuit Monday afternoon is ongoing.

2 NEWS reached out to the Troy Police Department Wednesday for an update. They tell us they’re gathering more information on the chase from the various agencies involved. They’re obtaining dash camera video, reports, the reconstruction of the crash from Ohio State Highway Patrol and crime lab results on the suspect.

Troy police tell us they’re looking into whether the officers involved in the chase were within the department’s pursuit policy. According to documents obtained by 2 NEWS, Troy’s pursuit policy states that officers must use good judgment and not get into a situation that could endanger officers or others. They have to believe two things before initiating chase: that the suspect has or will cause physical harm or death and that the suspect must be arrested immediately. If the department finds officers did not follow their policy, they could face disciplinary action.

On Monday, 28-year-old Anthony Hufford of Englewood was killed when a stolen pickup truck crashed into his car. Authorities were chasing the speeding truck before the crash happened. Troy terminated its pursuit shortly before the deadly crash on North Dixie Drive.

The suspect appeared in court on Tuesday morning.

Jordan Harville was arraigned on a felony theft charge for stealing a pickup truck. A judge set Harville’s bond at $75,000.00.

Harville is being held in the Miami County Jail. He’s due back in court on April 4th.
