WPD: Two arrested for stealing cars


By Duane Weyand - Chief of Police,Wilmington



WILMINGTON — Last week we had two stolen vehicle reports. As a result of one of those alleged crimes and another theft of a vehicle this week, Jeffrey Tedford, 31, of Hillsboro and Stephanie Kintz, 33, of Wilmington are incarcerated. Both will have additional charges filed against them.

The total calls for service ended up for the week at 398. Suspicious-person calls continue to be the lead activity for the week. We had a little more than normal theft calls for the week — 20 theft calls in all. Several of these have or will have arrests made in the coming weeks.

Several of the theft reports involve someone going through an unlocked car in the downtown area or thefts where backpacks or similar items were left unattended in locker rooms.

We made 25 arrests for the week. A few of the arrests that haven’t been reported during the week include: Katherine Fredrick, 29, of Washington Court House for alleged theft and criminal tools; Todd Hedges, 42, of Wilmington for alleged possession of drug abuse instruments; Joseph Faul, 29, of Jamestown for allegedly operating a vehicle under the influence; Jason Pack, 36, of Wilmington for alleged possession of drug abuse instruments; and Stephen Picone, 52, of New Vienna, for alleged aggravated menacing.

Duane Weyand is Wilmington Chief of Police.
