Summons issued for theft


Justin A. Haynes, 22, of 8890 Township Road 239, Lot 32, Lakeview, was issued a summons for theft Friday after he reportedly took money from a local residence while he was working with a carpet cleaning business.

Last month, deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a report from Don Skinner, 11484 Horseshoe Channel Drive, Lakeview, regarding a theft of about $40 in coins from his residence. He said employees from a carpet cleaning business had recently been at his home.

Mr. Haynes was identified as a suspect during follow-up investigation.
