When the Dean Schramm, owner of Schramm Signs, showed up to work today he spotted a man stealing old signs from his property. Schramm tried to stop the man but he fled the scene almost running him over. Scrhamm then called 9-1-1 to report the theft and they alerted the Elyria Police. When the Police Dispatcher put out the description of the truck that the man was driving Officers quickly recognized it as a truck that had been reported stolen from Bay Electric out of Lorain earlier this month and was being used in recent robberies of scrap. Shortly after the report went out an Elyria Police Officer Scott Willis spotted the vehicle on Lorain Blvd and attempted to pull it over. The truck fled driving into the parking lot of the Lorain County 9-1-1 office striking a parked car. Although the man tried to escape on foot the Willis was able to apprehend him.

The owner of Bay Electric was contacted and came to the scene to recover his truck. He then returned to Schramm Signs to return the stolen items, valued at $10,000.00, off the back of his truck. Elyria Police have charged Guy Boggs, 47 of CLeveland, with the following: Receiving Stolen Property, Aggravated Robbery, Breaking & Entering and Reckless Operation.
On a side note: The car that was struck in the 9-1-1 parking lot belongs to the 9-1-1 operator who took the call about the theft.
