The Ohio State Highway Patrol said it has recovered a military Humvee stolen last week from the Ohio National Guard Armory in Stow.
The patrol said in a March 25 release that at the time of the theft there were no witnesses or information available. The patrol stated it received tips regarding the stolen Humvee after the theft was publicized by news outlets, social media and bulletins. Ultimately, the tips led to credible information and a search warrant was filed and executed at a vacant residence in Trumbull County March 24. The Humvee was located in the garage during the search, the patrol stated.
The patrol responded to the Armory at 4630 Allen Road at 3:30 p.m. on March 22. Troopers discovered the suspect(s) cut through a chain link fence and entered into a secured area where the Humvee was stored. The Humvee was locked at the time of the theft, but the suspect(s) disabled the locking mechanism and drove the vehicle off the premises.
The patrol said it thanks the public, news media organizations and its law enforcement partners who assisted in locating the stolen Humvee. The investigation into the theft continues and more information will be released as it becomes available, the patrol stated.
