The Portage County Sheriff's Office has issued two arrest warrants in conjunction with a recent break-in at a Suffield Township stables.

According to Gregory Johnson, detective bureau chief, officers are seeking David W. Recklaw, 40, of 6464 Newton Falls Road, Ravenna, and Troy S. Ash, 40, of 62 Wymore Avenue, Akron, in conjunction with last week's incident at the Moxie Stables.

Video surveillance from the scene shows two male subjects entering a barn during the early morning hours of July 30 and removing numerous items of value from the barn and placing them in a vehicle. Both men were identified from the video and are charged with breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony that carries a maximum of one year in prison and a $2,500 fine.

It is unknown at this time if the two subjects are involved in any of the other recent breaking and entering incidents that have recently been occurring in the southern portion of Portage County. Investigations regarding those incidents are ongoing.

At the time a press release was issued Thursday, Recklaw and Ash had not yet been taken into custody. Sheriff David W. Doak requests anyone with information as to their whereabouts to take no action on their own but to contact the Portage County Sheriff's Office at 330-296-5100, ext. 0.
