RICHFIELD — Washington County Sheriff’s officials recovered a significant number of stolen firearms and drugs during a residential search warrant late Tuesday night in the Village of Richfield.
According to police, a 41-year-old Washington County man and his 25-year-old girlfriend are in custody and facing multiple felony charges.
“This case is notable on multiple levels, first we were able to take a significant amount of firepower out of the hands of dangerous criminals, equally important we will be able to return that property back to the victims that these criminals preyed on and make them whole again and finally the people that committed these offenses will be held accountable for their crimes against our community,” said Washington County Sheriff Martin Schulteis.
Authorities also seized a John Deere Tractor that had been taken in another burglary from Portage County.
A 37-year-old former roommate of the two other suspects was also charged in connection with these crimes. All three suspects were arrested on multiple felonies and will now face charges in Washington County Circuit Court.
