RAVENNA, Ohio - A Ravenna man is charged in his second set of northeast Ohio burglaries this year.
The Record-Courier reports 36-year-old Jason W. Ferrell is serving a five-year prison term for three burglaries he committed this spring in Summit County.
In August, he was charged with another dozen break-ins in adjacent Portage County between April and June. He was indicted on 12 counts, including 10 second-degree felony burglary charges that carry a potential sentence of two to five years each.
The newspaper reported the Portage County Sheriff was able to solve the second set of crimes after Ferrell was taken into custody in May and cooperated with authorities. They said his motive is drug addiction.
Ferrell's trial before Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman is scheduled for Feb. 15.
