Sheriff’s deputies arrested Damien J. Pursel, 26, of West Unity, Wednesday afternoon on a Williams County Court of Common Pleas grand jury indictment charging him with two counts of second-degree felony burglary and four counts of third-degree felony grand theft.

Court documents indicate that on Feb. 8 he allegedly broke into a residence at 15301 County Road 18, Alvordton, and, once inside, stole two 9mm Ruger handguns, a .22-caliber Ruger rifle, a Mossburg 500A shotgun and the safe in which they were stored.

He was taken to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, where he remains.
