ODOT to perform

concrete work

STEUBENVILLE — State Route 7 southbound will be restricted to one lane of traffic today at the University Boulevard intersection for concrete repairs, the Ohio Department of Transportation reported.

ODOT reported the repairs are due to the recent hot temperatures, which caused the concrete to heave, and is therefore in need of immediate repairs.

ODOT advised motorists should plan ahead to avoid any possible delays related to this work.

Man pleads guilty to grain proceed theft

NORWALK — State officials say a man accused of stealing more than $3 million in proceeds from grain he sold on behalf of northern Ohio farmers has pleaded guilty to theft and other charges.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office say 79-year-old Richard Schwan pleaded guilty Monday in Norwalk to charges including aggravated theft and falsification.

Investigators say Schwan, doing business as Schwan Grain Inc., sold grain on behalf of 35 farmers in Huron, Erie, Lorain, Richland and Seneca counties. Investigators say he deliberately failed to pay farmers their share of grain-sale proceeds and filed false financial documents with Ohio.

Sentencing is Aug. 23.
