Authorities are investigating two attempted burglaries yesterday in Jerusalem Township during which two men tried to steal items worth about $3,000.
The men entered 719 and 751 North Yondota Rd. just after 8 a.m. But when a vehicle pulled into one of the driveways, the men fled on foot, leaving their van and items they intended to steal, including TVs, stereos, a gun, and tools, authorities said.
The 30 flag poles that dot the boat basin in International Park along the Maumee River are flagless, but they won't be for long.
The poles, which typically fly the flags of various countries, are awaiting a new set to get them through the year, said Mary Chris Skeldon, public information officer for Mayor Jack Ford.
Toledo's Department of Parks, Recreation, and Forestry replaces the flags annually due to wear and tear, and the new flags should be installed by the end of the week.
