MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy man was arraigned in Miami County Common Pleas Court on Thursday charged with three counts of fourth degree felony theft and three counts of fifth degree felony breaking and entering.

Kyle Plantz, 24, of Troy, pleaded not guilty to the charges. Miami County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeannine Pratt set bond at $10,000.

According to the Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Plantz is allegedly connected to several break-ins and thefts on Kessler-Frederick Road last October.

All-terrain vehicles and other items were reported stolen. Plantz, along with Johanathan Nohacs, 21, of Vandalia, were caught on trail cameras on one of the properties. Nohacs has been indicted on three counts of breaking and entering and three counts of theft in the incident. Nohacs remains at large with felony warrants, according to authorities.

Plantz is currently incarcerated in the Miami County Jail. Judge Pratt set a pre-trial date for Jan. 4, 2016 with Judge Christopher Gee presiding.

“Residents assisted in the identification of the suspects from the trail camera photos that were posted on our Facebook page and also published by the news media,” said Chief Deputy Dave Duchak in a press release.
