Arrests made in Columbiana County burglary spree

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio - Police in Columbiana County say they've made several arrests involving a three month long burglary spree in the area.

Police in Columbiana and Portage counties say they've arrested five people who they believe were involved in over 15 burglaries in the tri-county area.

Thirty-nine-year-old Daniel Boots, 34-year-old Heather Boots and 35-year-old Juston Buskirk, all from East Palestine, are charged with burglary.

Last week, 34-year-old Sherman Greathouse and 30-year-old Jessica Greathouse of New Waterford were charged with receiving stolen property.

"A lot of these burglaries are occurring during the day when people are at work. These particular individuals would go to the door, knock on the door. If nobody came to the door, they would kick it in and gain entry," said New Waterford Police Chief Dan Haueter.

Police say neighbors need to help each other to thwart break-ins in rural areas.

"Your neighbors probably know who comes and goes from your residence. So if there's a strange vehicle in the driveway, obviously call the sheriff's office or your local police department and have it checked out and try and get a license number and description," said Columbiana County Sheriff Raymond Stone

Police say most of the stolen items were pawned or sold online and could not be recovered.
