Operation "Where's the Beef" results in the arrest of three.

Once again the power of social media pays off in a big way.

Yesterday we posted information about a breaking and entering case involving a large quantity of meat. Within 15 minutes of this information being posted we received information pertaining to the suspects.

Deputies worked this case into the early morning hours when they executed a search warrant on Canaan Center road. Upon entering the residence the deputies encountered two men and a woman. While searching the home the deputies discovered a large quantity of meat inside of two bathtubs in the home. The meat was covered with snow to help keep it cool. Additional meat was found in the refrigerator and yet more in trash bags filled with snow.

The suspects were then arrested and transported to the Wayne County Justice Center. Arrested are...

James Malone age 36 of 318 Bardon St. Wooster

Penny Malone age 41 of 318 Bardon St. Wooster

Tyler Chrostowski age 24 of 1181 Mindy Lane Wooster

All three suspects were arrested for receiving stolen property. All three suspects have lengthy criminal records and are no strangers to the Wayne County justice system.
The meat that was recovered is valued at over $9000.00

In addition to the meat that was recovered, the deputies also discovered marijuana and a ledger containing the names and phone numbers of individuals who purchased meat from this trio of criminals. If you bought meat from these people, you may want to contact us today.

Additional charges are expected as the investigation into this matter continues.
