Poland teacher’s husband also charged in Boardman robbery

Published: Fri, October 4, 2013 @ 10:54 a.m.

The husband of a Poland schools teacher charged in a Boardman robbery was arrested Thursday, then booked into the Mahoning County jail.

Frank Consiglio, 45, of Canfield is charged with robbery and possession of drugs.

Irene Consiglio, the teacher, was arrested on Wednesday for complicity to robbery and fleeing and eluding police.

Meanwhile, Frank Consiglio Jr., who lists the same Canfield address as the other two, is also in the county jail for a list of charges.

Frank Jr. has charges from Sept. 29 for receiving stolen property. He also has a receiving stolen property charge and criminal damaging charge from Sept. 24. In addition, he has theft, driving under suspension, fictitious plates and expired plates charges from Sept. 20.

Frank Jr. has a jury trial for a receiving stolen property set for 10 a.m. Oct. 28.

He has a pretrial hearing in Canfield court at 4 p.m. Oct. 29 in Canfield court for criminal endangering and he has a pretrial in Boardman court for theft at 4 p.m. Oct. 24.

A court date for Frank Consiglio has not yet been set.

A 67-year-old woman was robbed of her purse as she was getting into her car outside of the Sandwich Factory on Market Street Wednesday evening. The woman had $900 cash, two checks issued to her, along with multiple debit and credit cards in it.

Police were able to spot the getaway car within minutes of the robbery, but Irene Consiglio, Frank Consiglio’s wife and the apparent driver of the car, fled from police after being stopped.

She pulled over at the Blue Wolf Tavern Banquet Hall on Lockwood Boulevard. The man who stole the purse jumped out of the car and ran into the woods. Police searched for him on Wednesday, but could not find him.

Irene Consiglio has been a teacher for Poland schools for the past 13 years. She is also a track coach.

Drugs are the absolute scurge of this society. Don Corleone was correct: drugs is dirty business. It ALWAYS destroys eveyone involved. It is time to get serious and go back to the old ways of blaming the user instead of the dealers who will always have the product to sell. The user must be offered a choice of hard time or mandatory rehab in an incarceration facility.

She should have been a teacher in Canfield where they are all sitting on miillion dollar plus pensions and asking for more levy money so that we can increase their bloated salaries

So, it looks like their crime spree took off like a lead balloon. Teaching in the Poland schools must not pay well.

very sad situation.... drugs are destroying this country and our DOJ wants to keep drug users out of jail. Drugs are a big factor in crime, While this young lady is guilty and we will never know the truth probably, shame on her husband for putting her in this position..if you love your wife, how do you put her in this position whether she wanted to be a part of it or not.. thoughts and prayers for them both that they can change the path they are on and save themselves. It is never to late no matter what one might think. luckily no ones life was lost.

Would any of this matter if the individual was a truck driver from (pick a city), a Dr from (pick a city) ? You get the idea. What difference in hell would it make... The point is that this incident appears to be drug related, an innocent individual was assaulted and robbed and some, not all, immediately begin to direct under educated opinions towards teachers, unions, and every other issue except the real issue. I am not an educator, nor a union member. I have no issues with educators or unions. I do believe however that people need to take responsibility for themselves and their families. As a society we are too soft, too lenient. I do believe in second chances, but not third or fourth. Laws are laws. Figure it out, it is unfortunate, drugs can and do ruin lives, however, if you cannot control yourself, someone else should. Your rights should be taken away when you cannot or will not function as part of a normal society. I am not for more government or more policing, just a more effective enforcement of what we have. You need to earn and make your place in society it is not given. It is not a race, religious, or gender issue, it is societal.. Figure it out
