SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — More than $100,000 in stolen property has been recovered following the arrest of three men accused of being involved in thefts in Summit County.

Jerry Stubblefield, 48, of Munroe Falls; Jeremy Harnack, 39, of Akron and Mark Harkless, 52, of Akron, were arrested earlier this month by Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

The arrests were made following a multi-agency investigation involving the Summit County and Portage County Sheriff's offices and Akron, Boston Heights and Tallmadge police departments.

Stubblefield is charged with three counts of breaking and entering, five counts of felony theft and drug possession. Harnack is charged with three counts of breaking and entering and three counts of felony theft. Harkless is charged with one count of felony theft, according to authorities.

Deputies said the stolen property was linked back to various crimes across the county, including a February incident where a trailer worth $10,000 was taken from a storage unit in Green. Other items taken include lawn mowers, construction equipment and various other trailers.
