POLAND -- Township police said they have arrested a Campbell man they believe is responsible for a number of thefts and break-ins in the area.
Richard J. Hodnicky, 44, of Struthers-Liberty Road, Campbell, appeared in Struthers court facing two felony counts of breaking and entering, and one felony count of failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer.
A preliminary hearing has been set for Wednesday. Hodnicky is in Mahoning County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond.
According to police reports, a township police officer saw Hodnicky pulling out of the Countryside Pumpkin and Produce Farm parking lot on Center Road just after 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Police say the business had been burglarized several times in the past several weeks. Reports say the truck Hodnicky was driving fit the description of a vehicle involved in several burglaries.
Chase
Reports say when officers tried to pull the truck over, Hodnicky fled at a high rate of speed. The chase went through Poland into Struthers, then Campbell.
The truck got stuck in a ditch in Coitsville Township. Police lost Hodnicky in the woods. He was arrested a short time later when he came back to claim the truck, telling police it had been stolen.
Police Chief Carl Massullo said Hodnicky is a suspect in several other area break-ins and more charges are possible.
