Meigs County men arrested in Riverside Towing burglary

LONG BOTTOM, Ohio — Two Meigs County men were charged with aggravated burglary Monday after their truck got stuck near the alleged victim.

According to a press release from Meigs County Sheriff Keith Wood, a deputy responded around noon Monday to a report of a suspicious male on Sugar Run Road asking for help with a vehicle stuck in the woods. The Jeep was found about 50 yards off the road near property owned by Riverside Towing.

As they approached the vehicle, the deputy and Riverside owner Lee Richards found multiple items Richards said belonged to vehicles in his tow yard.

A male later identified as Glenn F. Young, 55, of Racine, was found sleeping on the passenger side of the vehicle and taken into custody, the release says.

Deputies and Racine Marshal Hupp later apprehended the first male, identified as Robert E. Thorla, 41, of Racine, at a residence on Bashan Road.

Both men were charged with aggravated burglary, possession of criminal tools and vandalism and are awaiting arraignment in Meigs County Court, the release said.
