Jasson D. Myers, 30, was originally indicted in the Gallia County Court of Common Pleas after allegedly breaking into the Skyline Lanes Bowling Alley located on Ohio 7 in Kanauga on August 6, 2010. It was reported that an unknown person or persons entered the building during the early morning hours and vandalized the interior, stealing cash from the game machines and the ATM. Evidence was collected at the scene which later led to Myers’ indictment in August.
On Oct. 14, Myers was arrested by deputies with the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office on a warrant that was issued as a consequence of his indictment. Myers was also seen as a person of interest in a breaking and entering offense that had occurred at Pizza Plus restaurant in the Spring Valley Area of Green Township on the same day.
Property that was identified as being the stolen merchandise from Pizza Plus was later recovered from a Mason Co., W.Va. residence after Gallia Co. deputies received assistance from the West Virginia State Police.
On Monday, Myers was arraigned in the municipal court on one count of breaking and entering and one count of vandalism, both charges relating to the most recent alleged offense involving the Pizza Plus restaurant. In the court of common pleas, Myers was arraigned on one count of breaking and entering, one count of vandalism and one count of safecracking for the alleged criminal activity that occurred at the Skyline Lanes bowling alley.
Myers is scheduled to appear in the municipal court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing in his second case and a status conference in Myers’ first case is scheduled on Dec. 2 in the common pleas courtroom.
The defendant is currently being held in the Gallia County Jail under a 100,000, 10 percent bond.
