Vehicle reported stolen: A 22-year-old Ashland County man was charged with fourth-degree felony theft of a motor vehicle after police saw his vehicle on Steels Corners Road near Route 8 and followed it into a Bridgewater Parkway parking lot at about 4 a.m. May 23.

The man was also charged with misdemeanor charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, blood alcohol content over the legal limit, driving under possession and marijuana possession.
