Huron County grand jurors on Friday indicted Randy Ruff, 40, most recently of the Willard area, on one count of failure to appear, one count of theft of a motor vehicle, one count of theft and one count of tampering with evidence.
The list of indictments listed him as “Robert Mosley aka Randy Ruff,” and there were separate birth dates for each name.
Ruff was taken into custody in May by U.S. Border Patrol officers after allegedly attempting to remove tires from a stolen vehicle, according to Huron County Sheriff's Detective Bill Duncan.
Ruff was wanted on three local warrants for theft of a vehicle.
“When Ruff was arrested he gave the name, 'Robert Moseley,,” Duncan said. "But when he was fingerprinted, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) connected him to our warrants.”
Duncan said Huron County has a holder placed on Ruff so if he would be released on bond in Detroit, he would then be turned over to local deputies.
Local bondsman Zac Crumrine, who had offered a large monetary reward for Ruff’s capture, confirmed that Ruff has used various aliases. Ruff had been on the lam for several months in connection with grand theft.
Crumrine said Ruff is incarcerated in Michigan. Once he finishes his sentence in that state, he will be brought to Huron County to serve time here.
“It’s good to have him off the streets,” Crumrine said.
