Ansonia breaking and entering arrest


ANSONIA – On Tuesday, at approximately 6:38 p.m., Darke County Deputies were dispatched to 308 Winbigler Street in Ansonia, in reference to a breaking and entering complaint. Deputies were advised a pick-up truck was parked at the property, and multiple people were going in and out of a shed also located on the property.

Upon Deputies arrival, two individuals were located in the shed. The individuals were identified as Matthew Hall (37) and Joshua Mitchell (31), both from Ansonia.
