Jamestown man charged with burglary
PERRYSBURG - Troopers charged Russell Balles, 33, of Prospect Street in Jamestown with third-degree burglary and possession of burglar tools, following a call for a suspicious vehicle.
Troopers responded to Airview Drive at about 8:15 a.m. after an area resident who was walking spotted the vehicle parked on the abandoned JN Adams grounds. Troopers checked the area and found the perimeter fence was cut and propped open with a metal pipe. Troopers also found two large copper pipes near the fence as well as a backpack filled with cutting hand tools.
Balles was spotted inside the grounds, hiding behind a cement wall. He walked out after realizing he had been seen.
He was processed at state police barracks in Collins and is scheduled for Perrysburg Town Court in November.
Troopers are continuing their investigation since another individual was involved in the incident.
