Richland County Sheriff's Detectives and the U.S. Marshals' Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested a Crestline man in the Saturday home invasion robbery of a resident at 1125 Brookdale Drive in Crestline.

Jedd Heiland of 55 Penn Avenue Apartment 1, is charged with Aggravated Robbery and Aggravated Burglary and is accused of pistol-whipping a man when he opened his garage door and went into the driveway, and stealing $200, his cell phone, and a credit card.

Sheriff's Major Dale Fortney says evidence linking Heiland to the crime was taken from his apartment.

Detectives are also investigating the Monday night home invasion robbery of 53-year-old Timothy Garn at 1191 East Hanley Road.

Garn tells WMFD-TV News he answered a knock on his door and a young man told him his car was broken door and asked to use his phone.

When Garn let him in, another man wearing a mask and holding a gun forced his way inside, and both tied his hands, pistol-whipped him, and robbed $1500 cash, his cell phone, and his wallet specially made from the skin of a sting ray.

Garn says the attack left him bleeding, but the wounds to his head and left arm did not require stitches, so he declined to go to the hospital.

He calls the robbers "sissies" who thought they were tough because they had guns, but became frightened and ran away as fast as they could when he put up a struggle.

Maj. Fortney says they have "persons of interest", and he believes both robberies are connected.  He hopes to make more arrests soon.

Police suggest residents not let someone come into their home to use the phone.  Keep them outside with the door locked, and make the call for them.
