Man charged for stealing trailer
(WOUB) - Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen says while Sheriff's office detectives were investigating a theft this week, they witnessed another one.

Phalen says detectives were following up on a case Tuesday night at the 33 Self Storage Facility in Violet Township when a man came in, hooked his vehicle up to a trailer and drove off with it.

Authorities determined that the trailer was owned by Canal Winchester man and he had not given anyone permission to use it.

42-year-old David Wiant of Lancaster was arrested a short time later and charged with four felonies including breaking and entering and theft.

Phalen says he is now in jail on a $100,000 bond and faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
