Highway Patrol and FBI make arrests in stolen Humvee case

BROOKFIELD, OHIO (TRUMBULL COUNTY) – The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the FBI arrested two suspects in the theft of a military Humvee from the Ohio National Guard Armory located in Stow, Ohio, in March.

Troopers and FBI Agents arrested Daniel Thompson from Girard, Ohio, and Austin Bollinger from Masury, Ohio, after they were indicted through the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern District for the theft of property belonging to the United States (Violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 641).

The Humvee was stolen between March 17 and 18, 2017, from the Ohio National Guard Armory. The suspects cut through a chain link fence and made entry into the secured area where the Humvee was stored. The Humvee was locked at the time of the theft, but the suspects disabled the locking mechanism and drove the vehicle off the premises. A search warrant was executed at a vacant residence in Brookfield, Ohio, and led to the discovery of the Humvee in the garage. It was partly disassembled at the time of recovery.

The Patrol and the FBI would like to thank the public, news media organizations and our law enforcement partners who assisted in this investigation. The investigation is continuing and additional suspects and charges will be forthcoming.
