Information available at press time said that a suspect had broken into Trupointe Cooperative Inc., 101 N. Main St..
Deputies responded to the agricultural complex along with Wapakoneta police Lt. Joe Welker and the K-9 and troopers with the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
"While checking the building, an unknown subject fled out of the business and was chased by officers," a news release said. "He was lost in an area west of Trupointe."
