Authorities have arrested the second of two men suspected in an Amboy Township burglary Sept. 8 and a series of other area break-ins.
Richard Schoch, 45, of Holland, Ohio, turned himself in to the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday.
Corey L. Richardson, 40, of Toledo was arrested last week by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office , and was booked into the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio for aggravated burglary after being treated for injuries at the Fulton County Health Center. Other charges may be added.
Responding to a call of a burglary in progress in Amboy Township, a sheriff’s deputy came across the suspects’ vehicle and attempted to stop it. The vehicle traveled through a yard, down a lane, and into a cornfield, where the suspects fled on foot. Richardson was apprehended a short time later, according to the sheriff’s office.
Schoch was not found following an extensive search with assistance from the Wauseon, Delta, and Toledo police departments, the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The description of the vehicle and suspects given by witnesses and other evidence collected from burglaries occurring earlier last week in Fulton County, the City of Wauseon, and areas of Lucas County leads authorities to believe the suspects are associated with those crimes.
