COITSVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio -

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with as many as fifty burglaries on either side of the Ohio-Pennsylvania line.

Coitsville police say the arrests are a result of beefed-up patrols following reports of several break-ins in the township, as well as Pulaski and Mahoning Township.

A break in the case came on Tuesday, when a Coitsville officer pulled over a car that had veered into the path of his cruiser.

Investigators found several items, believed to have been stolen, when they searched the car.

Officers searched the rooms at Kings Motel where the two had been staying with another man and woman, and found more stolen goods.

35-year-old Brian Dragos of Mineral Ridge is jailed on charges of burglary and receiving stolen property.

31-year-old Dianna Howell of Warren, and 38-year-old Scott Wheeland of Niles are also charged with receiving stolen property. The three face arraignment in Campbell Municipal Court on Friday.

32-year-old Dawna Sayers of Niles is in the Lawrence County jail, held on a charge of complicity.

Coitsville Police Chief Michael Morris says the suspects may be responsible for more than 50 burglaries. Police in Warren, Niles, Hubbard, West Middlesex, Pulaski, and Mahoning Township are all interested in talking to the four people arrested.
