Incoming Lawmaker Charged With Theft


An Ottawa County grand jury has indicted incoming Republican State Representative Steven Kraus on charges of stealing antiques and other items from a home in Port Clinton earlier this year. Police say witnesses took photos of Kraus, who is an auctioneer, taking the items from the home. His attorney has said Krauss admitted taking the items, but said a real estate agent selling the home asked him to do so to inventory them for auction. Kraus defeated incumbent Democrat Chris Redfern in the November election.
