Man arrested for stealing beer, getting drunk in gas station



Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department arrested a man Friday morning for stealing beer and drinking it in a gas station bathroom.

John William Dunn III, 52, at large, was charged with theft, criminal trespass and public intoxication, after he was discovered drinking cans of beer in the bathroom of Speedway, 329 S. Main St., about 10:40 a.m.

Staff there told police the suspect took multiple cans of Four Loco into a bathroom stall and was drinking them.

When officers arrived, the man was intoxicated and covered in his own filth. Days ago he’d been told to leave the gas station, and not to return, management reported to police.

He was lodged in Logan County Jail.

The suspect had just been arrested June 23 and charged with failure to provide his address as a registered sex offender.
