A man recently released from prison after serving time for safecracking and breaking and entering is back behind bars on similar charges after Beaver Township Police say they caught him walking away with a safe stolen from a local golf course.

Thirty-eight-year-old Brandon Welz was booked into the Mahoning County Jail early Saturday on charges of safecracking, breaking and entering, possessing criminal tools, and resisting arrest.

Officers from Beaver, Boardman, and Springfield Townships surrounded the Reserve Run Golf Course on East Western Reserve Road late Friday after an employee reported seeing someone on a security camera breaking in.

When police and two K-9 officers arrived, they say Welz was walking out carrying a small safe.

Police say Welz dropped the safe and began to run.

After an officer threatened to release his K-9, police said they were able to capture Welz.

The safe was recovered along with a backpack containing a prybar, wire snips, gloves, and a ski mask.

Officers say they found that the glass door of the golf course pro shop had been kicked in.

At a nearby gas station, police say they arrested Tiffany Adkins, who shares the same West Farmington address as Welz.  Police say Adkins had a crack pipe and what police described as “criminal tools”.  Adkins was issued a court summons.

According to state records, Welz was released from prison three months ago after serving a year for an escape conviction in Trumbull County as well as safecracking and breaking and entering in Portage County.

Welz was on parole at the time he was arrested on Friday
