Newton Falls Police nab pizza delivery driver on sex charges
A pizza delivery man arrested by Newton Falls police for sex crimes against a teenage girl is wanted in another state for a similar crime, according to authorities.
Police picked up 25-year-old Benjamin James Howell Thursday night, according to police chief Gene Fixler.
Howell was arrested at his Milton Avenue apartment after officers first tried to find him at the local pizza shop where he worked as a delivery driver.
Fixler did not reveal the age of the alleged victim, only identifying her as a teenage girl.
Howell is being held in the county jail on two counts of gross sexual imposition without bond and scheduled for video arraignment Monday in Newton Falls Municipal Court.
Howell is wanted by authorities in Nags Head, North Carolina, on similar charges, according to Fixler.
