Also indicted on multiple charges was Dehlen Hyden, 29, who reportedly stole a Bucyrus police cruiser and led Bucyrus police on a long chase that ended in Wyandot, Ohio. The pursuit also included deputies from Wyandot, Marion and Crawford counties.

After being arrested on another charge on March 6, Hyden was hand-cuffed and placed in the back seat of a police car, He managed to crawl into the front seat of the cruiser and take off.

“Even though the prosecutor’s office operated with minimal staffing in March and April, the wheels of justice never stopped turning,” Crall said.

”I also want to thank the jurors who served during such an unusual time in our history,” he said. “The grand jury did meet on two separate occasions, using the largest room in the courthouse to provide for proper social distancing as recommended by Crawford County Public Health. Masks were provided for jurors and the room used, restrooms and hallways were sanitized before and after the session to safeguard those who were serving.
