MEIGS COUNTY — A trio charged in the May breaking and entering and copper theft at the D.V. Weber Construction Warehouse were arrested again on Friday morning.
Williams Adams, 37, Amy Leedy, 23, and Lori Leedy, 47, all of Nelsonville were arrested by Deputies Brian Holman and Donnie Mohler as they were loading stolen cooper into their vehicle according to Meigs County Sheriff Robert Beegle.
Deputies had just checked the D.V. Weber Construction Warehouse and had gone across the roadway to check the area. They observed a vehicle coming down Curtis Hollow Road, and the deputies turned off their headlights. When the vehicle did not come out onto Ohio 124, the deputies drove over catching the three individuals.
Adams was charged with breaking and entering, possession of criminal tools and felony theft. The females were charged with felony theft.
All three appeared in Meigs County Court on Friday before Gallia County Municipal Court Judge Margaret Evans, sitting in for Judge Steven Story.
Adams was placed under $200,000 bond, with 10 percent permitted. Amy Leedy and Lori Leedy were each placed under $100,000 bond, with 10 percent permitted.
According to Beegle, during the County Court hearing Amy Leedy became upset and began assaulting Adams. She was physically restrained.
They were remanded to the custody of the sheriff.
Adams is being held in the county jail, while the two females were transported to the Washington County Jail.
All three individuals were out on bond from Meigs County Common Pleas Court from a similar incident at the D.V. Weber Construction Warehouse in the spring. The Sheriff’s Office has requested that bond be revoked in the earlier cases.
Adams was charged with five counts of breaking and entering from the earlier incident. Lori Leedy was charged with burglary and two counts of complicity. Amy Leedy was charged with two counts of breaking and entering.
