Man accused of breaking into father’s garage

BELLEVUE — A man was accused of breaking into his father’s garage after reporting others had broken into it Thursday afternoon.

Deputy Mark Lawson of Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said Randell T. Ladd, 34, of Bellevue, was charged with breaking and entering, criminal trespassing, falsification and driving under suspension Thursday.

He said deputies responded to the property at 7625 N. SR 269 after Ladd reported there were three men in his father’s garage and he was chasing them through a field to try and catch them. Nobody was at the residence when deputies arrived, Lawson said.

He said deputies searched the area for about 10 to 15 minutes, and then Ladd called them and said he was in a field and could see suspects.

Ladd was found in a field and his Ford F-150 was stuck in a field about an eighth of a mile off the road, Lawson said. There were no other suspects, he said.

Lawson said Ladd was not allowed on the property and he was transported to Seneca County Jail.

The incident was reported at 12:50 p.m. and Huron County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.
