      Ex-Fremont city leader indicted on theft charges

      A Sandusky County grand jury returned a two-count theft indictment against Fremont's former parks and recreation director on Monday, according to a release from Seneca County prosecuting attorney Derek DeVine

      The indictment alleges 41-year-old Marc Glotzbecker, former safety-service director, stole six Cedar Point tickets in June and $339 from the city last November. Both offenses are fifth degree felonies punishable for a maximum of one year in prison and a fine of $2,500.

      According to the Fremont News-Messenger, Glotzbecker issued checks to the Fremont Elite Runners Club, where he was a board member. Glotzbecker reportedly received no personal financial benefit, but authorized the club money for several races.

      Glotzbecker is currently on paid leave, according to the newspaper. His arraignment is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Nov. 2
