Man charged with breaking and entering


Derrick E. Triplett, 22, of 210 N. Koke St., DeGraff, was issued a warrant for breaking and entering and also was charged with receiving stolen property Friday.

Deputies served a search warrant at his residence June 4, and while they were there, they were approached by Mr. Triplett’s neighbor, Kevin McGinnis, 208 N. Koke St.

Mr. McGinnis said during December, he had previously reportedly a tool bag stolen from his truck. While serving the search warrant, deputies located the tool bag inside Mr. Triplett’s residence.

When questioned about the tool bag, the defendant said he thought it belonged to his brother. He was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
