A North Fairfield man must post a $30,000 bond before being released on an allegation he stole a car from a Milan man indicted on an unrelated robbery.
Jerry W. Gibson, 27, of 2168 S. Ridge Road, currently is in custody at the Erie County Jail on theft of a motor vehicle. Erie County Sheriff's Capt. Paul Sigsworth said the defendant is accused of stealing a blue 1995 Chevrolet Lumina from a Milan Township home Thursday night.
Gibson was supposed to buy the car from Justin D. Owens, 19, of 13805 Riley Road, in exchange for putting up $2,000 to get Owens out of the Huron County Jail, Sigsworth said.
