A Willard man accused of painting a stolen all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and breaking into a camper is scheduled for trial in January.

Phillip J. Faulkner, 22, of 144 S. Ohio 99, is charged with breaking and entering in connection with a Sept. 26 incident. He also faces one charge of tampering with evidence stemming from a Sept. 24 offense.

Faulkner pleaded innocent to both felonies Thursday in Huron County Common Pleas Court. Huron County Assistant Richard Woodruff has said Faulkner was found in possession of a yellow ATV stolen from an Ohio 162 residence in rural Monroeville and painted it black.

About 9:30 a.m. Sept. 26, the Huron County Sheriff's Office responded to the home of Faulkner's parents because Faulkner reportedly had reactions from a possible drug overdose on the front porch.

"When we got there, he had fled on foot," Detective Josh Querin said soon afterward. "We were very concerned for his welfare and safety because his parents said he was suicidal."

Querin and three deputies found Faulkner hiding in a camper on Bauman Road in Greenfield Township.

During the investigation of the Monroeville ATV theft earlier that same week, deputies said they found it in a ravine east of the Faulkner residence and another ATV suspected of being stolen from Shelby.

After obtaining a search warrant, detectives reported finding a marijuana-growing operation on the property and seized numerous drug instruments, suspected heroin, marijuana and prescription pills as evidence. Shelby police and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which was investigating a poaching complaint, assisted with the search.

Several people were arrested -- including Faulkner's parents and older sister -- on drug-related, tampering with evidence and receiving stolen property charges.

Faulkner's trial is scheduled for Jan. 22. If convicted of both charges, he faces as much as four years in prison and a $12,500 fine.

He earlier posted a $5,000 bond, but now is at the Richland County Jail on a probation violation.

@Rider. Never been in the wrong place at the wrong time......oh wait....I was once in a Walmart line when the cash register went out.....wrong place, wrong time. To insinuate ( ill let you google that word) that everyone who posts has been arrested for theft, running a drug operation and running from the police.....umm hate to break it to you, but we haven't. LOSERS!!!!!!!

live_laugh_love

good joke!!! NOT. you are the epitome ( i'll let you google that word) of a LOSER. not everyone who got arrested got those charges... GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT FIRST. before you OPEN your mouth.

BIGMOE

Career Criminal.....

rider

yeah if you really know him and the truth then you would know that the police never found a stolen fourwheeler on his parents property....And DR.Information you talk about being at walmart when the registers went out lmfao what does that have to do with being at the wrong place at the wrong time that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard of...and plus you say everyone on here defending him has been in jail....um for one i dont steal and two i dont do drugs and three i have no reason to run from the cops....i know a good kid when i see one even if he does make mistakes....learn how to stop judging people....

You don't steal or use drugs?... well good for you! You say you know a "good kid" when you see one? PFFFFT!!! Yes I agree even good people can make some mistakes... but good people DON'T use drugs and steal other people's property. Good people DON'T harbor a marijuana growing operation. Good people do NOT tamper with evidence NOR do they receive stolen propery. You will NOT find drug instruments, suspected heroin, and marijuana in the home of a good person. These actions should never be defended nor excuses be made for. People seem to be stuck on the fact that the ATV was not found on their property, but down from their property in a ravine (painted, of course). C'mooooon lady... who are we kidding here? We all know what happened. We all know how it got there. We all know why it ended up there. We all know who put it there. I seriously hope he (including his family) is convicted of all charges and that all the maximum fines and jail time are imposed. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

live_laugh_love

THE STOLEN FOUR WHEELER THAT WAS FOUND WAS NOT PAINTED DUMBA$$!!!! haha get your f-in facts straight. you DONT know what happened. you DONT know how it got there. and you DONT know how it ended up there. so shut your f-in mouth. and you DONT know who put it there. and we arent going to get convicted of all of the crimes, and we WONT get max fines or max jail time. HAHA. good try though. none of the shit they say in here is true anyways so none of you know anything about the situation. now once again. im DONE with you morons talking $h!t on him, his family, and me.

Brownzville

AAAAAhahahahahahahaha!!! More please!!! Give us more!!!!

live_laugh_love

AND his parents were NEVER arrested. GOSH THE NR NEEDS TO GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT TOO!!!

Whatthewhat

Isn't it funny that every single story the reflector post about some crack head junkie one of their family members comes on here saying things like he's no a drug user, he didn't steal that four wheeler, he didn't break into that camper to hide from the cops!!! Well Jaquelyn if Philip wasn't suck a loser or used drugs or stole thing he wouldnt be in the paper!!!! As for the parents it's true they are drug using white trash and will never learn!!!! LOSERS!!!!

Dr. Information

@whatthehat......very true. Family always will defend family no matter if they killed someone.

This is from September of 2010......A local man has been locked up after blowing his probation related to a drug-dealing conviction.

Phillip Faulkner, 20, of 144 S. Ohio 99, Willard, stipulated to violating his probation Tuesday. A judge ordered him to be held without bond until he is sentenced.

Faulkner originally was sentenced Jan. 19 to three years of probation for trafficking in marijuana. He also was fined $250, ordered to pay $40 in restitution to the Willard Police Department and had his driver's license suspended for six months.

Class act individual that doesn't learn and is a drag on society.

to bad im not Jaquelyn idiot. and the parents DONT do drugs. wow your such a f-in idiot. you OBVIOUSLY dont know the family you moron. your so idiotic you dont even know what your talking about. if you KNEW the family then you'd KNOW that the parents dont do drugs. HAHA.

Whatthewhat

Alright let me take what I said back. I only know that the father is a drug user not the mother. He's the one that grows the pot and has been doing it for years! I do know this to be a fact so stop acting like they are parents of the year or something!!!

live_laugh_love

i never said they were parents of the year. they are not bad parents, actually they are pretty damn good parents. and how do you know that for a fact?! do you smoke pot too?! you must if you know all that information. why dont you take your foot, and shove it in your mouth before you say anything else that you dont know about.?!

Whatthewhat

No I don't smoke pot TOO!!! I work on the railroad and get random checks all the time. That said I work with someone that is friends with the father that has seen it first hand. We are beating around the bush here. WHITE TRASH. Lock the whole family up and throw away the key!!!!!

live_laugh_love

yeah okay. like i believe that. i dont care what any of you say. you DONT know them personally to be calling them white trash.! like i said in a before comment you all are the epitome of white trash, calling people names, and saying shit you know nothing about. people like you need to rot in hell. that being said, have a GREAT day. im going to go to MY JOB, instead of sitting on here arguing with probably a grown ass man who knows NOTHING of what he is talking about!! Good Day. (:

live_laugh_love
