2 men plead no contest to St. Francis break-in


Two men arrested for a break-in at St. Francis de Sales High School have pleaded no contest to attempted burglary.

Robert Myrice II, 41, of 1957 W. Alexis Rd., and Aaron Eschmann, 45, of 5728 Rudyard Rd., Sylvania, were then found guilty Tuesday by Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Frederick McDonald. They face up to three years in prison when they are sentenced March 4, although prosecutors said they would recommend community control.

Jennifer Donovan, an assistant Lucas County prosecutor, said the pair broke a lock on a gate at the school on West Bancroft Street on Dec. 21, entered the building, broke into a safe in the kitchen, and stole about $1,000.
