A Delaware County Grand Jury has returned an 11-count indictment against 42-year-old Jessie Hunter Sr. and 22-year-old Jessie Hunter Jr.

Charges come after authorities in both Delaware and Union Counties received multiple reports of missing trailers from August 1, 2017 through September 30, 2017.

“Callers reported trailers disappearing from driveways and job sites,” said Acting Prosecutor Chris Betts. “The trailers were taken at night and almost immediately listed for sale on apps such as LetGo, Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, and Craigslist.

Hunter Sr., from Marysville and Hunter Jr., from Columbus are each charged with engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity – a first-degree felony, five counts of breaking and entering – all fifth-degree felonies, four counts of telecommunications fraud – fourth-degree felonies, and one count telecommunications fraud – a fifth-degree felony.

Arraignment dates for Hunter Sr. and Hunter Jr. are not yet set.
