Livingston County Sheriff Tom Dougherty reports the arrest of Shawn D. Wheeler, 26 years old from Groveland, N.Y., for the Felony charge of Burglary in the 3rd Degree, Petit Larceny and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
The charges stem from a larceny complaint made by Superior Walls of Lima involving the former employee, Wheeler. Through the course of the investigation it was learned that Wheeler was terminated from Superior Walls for a non related incident. After Wheeler was terminated, he later returned to the location and stole several pieces of formed rebar steel. He then took the rebar to a scrap metal recycling business, where he sold it for scrap weight. During the course of committing the burglary it was also learned that Wheeler had his two younger children with him at the time he committed the theft.
Wheeler was arraigned in front of Lima Justice Lohowy and sent to the Livingston County Jail on $2,500 cash bail/$5,000 property bond.
