Theft charges fill county court

Several people were arraigned Wednesday in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court.

Robert Prince, 32, of Franklin Furnace, was arraigned on one count of theft. He pleaded not guilty through his attorney, Chris Delawder.

Judge D. Scott Bowling set a $10,000 own recognizance (OR) bond with electronically monitored home confinement.

Daniel Prince, 27, of 78 Private Drive 77, South Point, was arraigned on one count of theft.

He pleaded not guilty through his attorney, David Reid Dillon.

Bowling allowed bond set in Ironton Municipal Court to continue and added a $10,000 own recognizance bond. Prince must return to court May 13 for a pretrial conference.

Paul Adkins, 34, of Toledo, was arraigned on one count of receiving stolen property. Bowling set a $20,000 OR bond and scheduled a May 13 pretrial conference.

Josh Brofford, 25, of 2272 N. Fifth St., Ironton, was arraigned on an escape charge. Brofford was supposed to report to local authorities so he could be sent to prison in November after conviction on a breaking and entering charge. He failed to report. He pleaded not guilty through his attorney, Roger Smith.

Brofford contended he was in Jackson County to answer charges against him there and authorities there took him to prison.

Bowling set a $20,000 OR bond with electronically monitored home confinement. Brofford must return to court in one week for a pretrial conference.
