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.

i personally know this kid, and this is the type of person he is. he steals, he lies, and he is always putting the blame on someone else. it's about damn time he finally gets his act together, because this time it's some bank cards, next time it could be a car, or being under the influence and breaking in someone's house and hurting them. and i KNOW he's 100% capable of doing that.

I doubt he will end up hurting anyone, hes too big of a twerp. However, he will continue to lie and steal and his crimes will continue to grow. This twerp is not to be trusted at all, never, ever, let him into your home. He's stolen thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and miscilanious electronic items and prescriptions. His cronies are also just as bad, a juvenile female and another 18 year old kid. There the type of scuzz bags that will steal your script and then tell the cops you sold it to them.

i know who he runs with. i used to hang out with mutual friends. never again. he is a thief. he is a pathetic person. i'm not going to sit here and blame his parents for not doing their job right. because his sister isn't the BEST role model, but she's nowhere near this bad. & this kid had something to do with ME getting into trouble for something that wasn't mine. i won't get into details, needless to say, he let me take the fall for him, and when i tried to defend myself, he stood there acting dumb, and i got charged for something HE should have been charged with. -just as much my fault as his, for even associating myself with him- this is sad, pathetic and it breaks my heart. good thing i got myself & my son OUT OF NORWALK!

Thats everyone's story about this kid, taking the wrap for his actions. I've known others that have gotten in trouble for things he's done. The other two are just as bad, if not worse. They all three lie like it's cool and get others in trouble for their behavior and addictions.

Anyone that knows this Kid, would know that he Ultimately, is a Great Kid! He's had his Wars. As a kid, he has made his mistakes. I know deep down, that he will overcome, and perservear in the End! He is Bright, Funny, Great Personality and He has alot of potential! He has made his mistakes, he will pay for his mistakes, Do we really need to Bash him publicly, instead of trying to help him? I think not! His Family and True Friends will help steer him back on the Right Path. I am sure of that. He is Worth it!

WRONG! His parents wont do anything but make excuses for him like they always do. His parents will probably put a restraining order on the victim saying she is a bad influence on their precious angel.

Wow, two people claim to know him, one thinks he's a loser the other a good kid. The truth is maybe somewhere in the middle?? I hope he does get his life in order.

This kids parents constantly make excuses for his criminal behavior. They blame every one but him for his actions and then wonder why hes in trouble. He has NEVER taken responsibility for ANYTHING. Yes hes a theif, yes hes a liar, and yes he will continue to do so, and yes, his parents will continue to blame everyone else for being a bad influence on this jack hole. This kid steals anything that isnt nailed down and shows absolutely no remorse. I know this kid and his cronies and I know people that have been cleaned out by those low-lifes.

lilmomma

this kid has stolen from his parents plenty of times. he will never learn and he is a loser. i know him very well and he is flat out a bad person. bottom line he needs to pay for what hes done

angelofmercy2973

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone!!!!!"

Vizegoth

You know nothing about anyone in this forum so you can stick your judgmental quotes. Secondly, there is more than monetary value associated with property. Peoples memories and dreams have been taken by this punk and he can never make up for the pain he's caused others. You hand me a stone and I'll hit him right between the eyes with it. NorwalkBMX is right, the kid is a druggy and an all around low-life. Even if he gets his life in order, he still cannot repay what hes taken from so many people.

And I said what???????????

This is exactly what is wrong with this kid! You come here and try to pass the blame to everyone else for what this kid did. The only constant in all of this theft and crime is Kenny. I have a feeling your related to the jack hole, and let me tell you this, I can tell he will not learn his lesson and we'll see him in the paper again based on your posts. He's a failure because your a failure.

i know this kid personally i went to school with him for year and use to be his friend i quit hanging with the kid because he started doing every drug imaginable and stealing this kid is nothing but a worthless low life druggy (great another one in norwalk) most all of his friends are the exact same god forgives those that actually repent not say there sorry than go and continue doing the same thing i hope he gets locked away for a long time

We need to get something straight: this person is not a KID. He deserves to go to prison for all the crap he's done. And everyone knows he didn't just break into the house he stole this property from. That Steele guy let him in and let him take her stuff. This whole situation is horrible for the victim and she's being called names and being threatened. SHE IS THE VICTIM. Those two men are junkies and disgusting and they BOTH need to be punished.

I agree he is not a kid anymore, but when you become my age anybody under 30 is still a kid. He will probably not do any time, except perhaps a few days in County. He will probably not be convicted of a felony, plea bargain it down to a misdemeanor, and he may, or may not depending on the plea be placed on a few years probation, and even then it may not be active (supervised). But, there is a good chance he will violate whatever sanctions the Judge places on him. I.e. restitution, fines, work, drug screens, counseling, etcetera. In addition, I actually am getting tired of drug addicts being able to use the excuse "I'm sick, I need help". If thats the case then everyone should be allowed to do whatever they want based on alcohol and mental illness. Everyones sick, everyone needs help, lets just do what we want, woohoo no consiquences.

Here's another one for you guys. This kid was bragging about having a job, and yet here he is stealing.

Now that he's in jail, they have no use for him! Kenny will perservear! He will start making better Descision's! I believe in Him! He's not the only KID to make a mistake. He will pay for his Crime. In more than one way. Cody Steele! You are a LOSER!!! You are an Enabler! You, and all of you're Loser Friends!!!!! All you do is DRUGS!! And help to Drug anyone else, that is around YOU! You will get youre's One Of These Days! It's Coming!!!

Kenny could have said no to drugs at anytime. Stop blaming others.

angelofmercy2973

Lol! I wasn't talking JUST about Kenny! How about the whole CLAN!!!

watchfuleye36

angelofmercy2973 your welcome cody steele is a peice of trash a low life scum trying to bring down others in his addiction! he has done terrble things to kenny like trying to make kenny do stuff with him for drugs!!! cody you will pay for all the wrong you have done to innocent kids kenny was jus a kid when you were preying on him pervert!!!

Norwalkian Damsel

"has had problems with drugs for years now he overdosed and almost died, hes been to rehab." YEAH and I'm sick of people saying this horsecrap! I DON'T CARE IF HE HAS A 'PROBLEM' HE'S A BAD PERSON AND DESERVES TO GO TO JAIL. As for Cody Steele, I couldn't agree more. That guy is a pervert and will gladly make gullible people do disgusting things for drugs, money, rides and whatever else. He let Kenny into his HOUSE to steal CODY'S NIECE'S money!! Then he probably made Kenny pay him off by giving him a sexual favor. Cody's whole family and everyone who's ever known him KNOWS that he is guilty. His mom always let him get away with stuff and now he expects everyone else to also. He's gross and smells bad and wears like 3 layers of makeup to go to Walmart. Yuck!

watchfuleye36

i begg to differ with you he is not a bad person!! i agree he could do better which when he gets into rehabt ofix himself it should go down better for him. Yes cody steele is absoulty gross!! pill poppin herion addict tht uses underage people to do things for him and as for letting kenny in to steal tht wallet word is hes the one who stole the wallet and gave it to kenny told him he would split the money with him. cody should be locked up rite with kenny tht low life bastard he will never amount to shit with the route that he is on and he will get his karmas a bad one to meet!!!

Dude, er, maam, or whatever you are, I can barely understand what it is your trying to type here. You have to prove the defaming statements are false; Not being arrested or charged based on lack of evidence, or being found not guilty of a crime are not substantial proof the lible statements were false. Kenny isn't the arresting agency, can't sue him for "false arrest". You can however attempt to file a civil claim for any bail/bond and, or, fees, such as attorney expenses for example, but again, good luck. Just because you hand an attorney money doesn't make that attorney the greatest litigator to ever complete law school. The fact that Kenny's character is questionable also makes his testimony against you questionable, or suspect. Good luck with all your "sue" mumbo-jumbo Rupaul.

Thanks for letting us all know that you are finally being charged! There may still be justice.
