A man and woman were arrested Monday, April 25 accused of breaking into a man’s Hamersville garage and stealing various tools estimated to be worth more than $1,000.
Brian Boyd Jr. and Krystal Koller allegedly broke into a garage on Elm Corner Rd. in Clark Township between April 16 and April 23, taking off with DeWalt cordless power tools, batteries, a flashlight, a circular saw and various other pieces of work equipment.
The two are also accused of stealing an assortment of tools on a second incident during the same period.
An initial investigation by Deputy John Fetters of Brown County Sheriff’s Office revealed Koller allegedly took the stolen goods from both thefts to Kentucky, where she sold them, according to court records.

Bond was set at $10,000 cash, surety or property for Boyd.

Great work by the police. Someone stole a large amount of tools from my sons home years ago and the sherif department wouldn’t help him get them back even though he knew who took them and where they were unless he had serial numbers from them all
