A local man is accused of stealing a debit card from a woman's purse.

Kenneth L. Ansel II, 18, of 16 E. Quail Hollow Drive, is charged with receiving stolen property, which is punishable by six to 12 months behind bars.

The victim reported Saturday someone took her wallet from her purse. The Norwalk Police Department investigated the complaint.

"She obtained information that led to Kenneth Ansel (being arrested)," Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said.

"He came to her residence (Sunday). ... They are acquaintances," Christophel said.

Police haven't been able to recover the victim's Social Security and bank debit cards.

"Both of them are still missing," Christophel said. "He (Ansel) made admissions to using the card at several merchants in Norwalk."

Ansel was arrested and transported to the Huron County Jail.
