Two suspects wanted in connection with the theft of a dozen firearms from a Russellville man were arrested after nearly three months on the run, police said on Tuesday, May 3.
Police said Joseph Stalbosky and Nathan Paeltz face felony charges in connection with the theft of 12 firearms, crossbows and knives from a man in Russellville.
The two men were arrested in the Bowen Drive neighborhood in Mason on Tuesday morning, according to police.
In April, police enlisted the help of Crime Stoppers to assist in locating Stalbosky.
Stalbosky is accused of stealing firearms and hunting equipment from his father. He allegedly traded his father’s stolen property in to pawn shops and gun stores.
Stalbosky has been charged with third-degree felony grand theft when the property is a firearm or dangerous ordnance.
Paeltz allegedly traded in three firearms, one crossbow and several knives belonging to the victim. He is also accused of being present while several of the other firearms were traded in and faces a charge of fourth-degree felony receiving stolen property.
The two suspects are being held in Warren County awaiting transit for an arraignment in Brown County Municipal Court, officials said.
The Russellville Police Department thanks the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office for their help in assisting them with the search for Stalbosky and Paeltz.
