WHEELERSBURG, Ohio -- A 26-year-old Wheelersburg man was arrested earlier this week on charges of theft from the elderly and breaking and entering in connection with a break-in last month, according to the office of Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini.

Derek A. Knight was arrested in the case and is being held without bond at the Scioto County Jail pending a court appearance.

A Scioto County woman contacted the sheriff's office April 23 reporting that someone stole a laptop computer and a John Deere riding lawn mower, according to the release.

On Tuesday, detectives contacted Russell, Ky., police and contacted a person who bought the mower. The laptop was located at a local pawn shop, according to the release.
