Fostoria, Ohio — A Bainbridge man is facing a felony charge after allegedly breaking into a Fostoria business.

On Sunday, Fostoria Police Division officers received a call for an alarm at 112 E. North Street, and upon arrival, they observed the front window of the business broken out.

During the search of the business, officers located a man inside and took him into custody.

Officers say as they searched the man, a brick was found inside his pants in addition to items he was allegedly stealing from the business.

The suspect, identified as 18-year-old Dandrae M. Brown, of Bainbridge, Ohio, was charged with breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony. He is being held at the Seneca County Jail.

“This is a great example of how citizens utilizing alarm systems to allow law enforcement to respond rapidly, and in this case, capture the individual still inside while committing the crime,” Fostoria Police Chief Keith Loreno said. “I am appreciative that my officers were able to take the suspect into custody without any issues since these situations are inherently dangerous for them.”
