Deputies: Burglary suspect admits to several crimes

Posted: Updated:

STRYKER, Ohio (WTVG) --

Authorities in Williams County say they have a repeat offender behind bars after catching him red handed.

Keith Bair, 26, of rural Defiance County, is locked up inside the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio.

Around 10 a.m. Thursday, Williams County deputies say someone drove past a relative's house near Stryker and allegedly spotted Bair loading items onto a truck and trailer.

Hours later, around 1:30 p.m., troopers with the Ohio State Highway Patrol spotted Bair's vehicle near Ney. They pulled him over, and waited for deputies to take him into custody.

While Bair was being questioned, detectives say he admitted to several other crimes in the county, but they have not yet disclosed details.

Right now, Bair is being held on a felony charge of break and entering and an outstanding arrest warrant. More charges are expected.
