Springfield man charged in BG home invasion

BOWLING GREEN - One of three men suspected in a home invasion here has been arrested in Springfield, Ohio.

Jared L. Smith, 22, of Springfield was charged with aggravated robbery and kidnapping stemming from an incident Feb. 13 at a South Main Street house. Lt. Ken Fortney said police found an X-box game system and games believed to have been taken in the robbery at the home where Mr. Smith was arrested.

Three masked men forced their way into the house, ordered the three occupants to the floor, and bound them with duct tape. Among the items stolen was a strongbox that later was recovered in a Dumpster in Findlay.
