Pleads not guilty
City Operations Department employee Dennis Griffing, 57, of King’s Drive in Lordstown pleaded not guilty in Warren Municipal Court to a petty theft charge, accused of stealing a new lawnmower from the operations building on Main Avenue Southwest.
Law Director Greg Hicks said the mower was among stolen items recovered by the Warren Police Department in the spring. Most of the items went to a city storage facility, but the mower accidentally got left behind at the operations department, where Griffing is accused of taking it home before police were able to recover it, Hicks said. The matter has resulted in disciplinary action being taken against Griffing by the city, Hicks said.
