SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – Police arrested two burglary suspects in Springfield Township early Friday morning after finding some items they believe were stolen in a bush near one of their houses.

Springfield Police responded to a call from a man who said someone was in his garage rummaging through his car. Police followed footsteps left in the early-morning dew to the house of Nicholas Erwin.

Police questioned Erwin about some scratches on his neck and shin, which he said were from shooting heroin, according to a police report.

Police questioned another suspect, Tyler Keltz, who was at Erwin’s house. Keltz said, according to the report, that he and Erwin were going from house to house looking for cars from which to steal.

Police recovered a number of credit cards belonging to a New Middletown resident, along with other items.

Both are charged with second-degree felony burglary and a fifth-degree felony charge of receiving stolen property. Both are set to have a preliminary hearing Friday, July 25.
