‘Armed & Dangerous’ Lucasville Parolee Busted in Stolen Car
Two Lucasville men, one of them a fugitive parolee, are behind bars after Scioto County Sheriff’s Deputies pulled them over in a stolen car early Thursday morning.
Just after 5 am, deputies stopped a vehicle with fictitious plates at the intersection of St. Rt. 104 and McDermott Pond Creek Road.
When deputies ran the VIN number, they discovered the vehicle was stolen. They arrested the driver, Marion Stiers, 43, of Lucasville, and passenger Nicholas Breech, of Otway. The Ohio Department of Rehabilitations and Corrections was searching for parolee Breech, whom they said should be considered ‘armed and dangerous.’
Breech is currently on parole for receiving stolen property. He was released on parole back in February of 2017 and has been arrested 10 times since then, including three times in the past year. Since his parole officers have taken him into custody for possession of drugs, multiple parole violations, DUI, multiple probation violations, failure to appear, endangering children, failure to control a vehicle, and contempt. This time, he was charged with receiving stolen property and a parole violation.
The driver, Marion Stiers was charged with receiving stolen property. Stiers also has a long criminal record with 14 visits to the Scioto County Jail. Charges include driving under a suspension, obstructing official business, failure to comply, failure to appear, probation violation, resisting arrests, giving false information, domestic violence, and failing to wear a seatbelt.
Both individuals appeared in Portsmouth Municipal Court Thursday morning. The case will be forwarded to the Scioto County Prosecutor’s Office to be presented to a Grand Jury. Stiers bond was set at $5,000. Breech is held without bond.
