Archbold police arrested two people on misdemeanor warrants, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17-18.

Rachelle Zavala, 27, Archbold, was arrested on Friday, Nov. 17.

An officer wrote in his report he had stopped Zavala at East Beech Street and West Street for a traffic offense at about 12:42 pm. During the stop, the officer was told there was an warrant for her arrest from Defiance County.

She was placed under arrest and taken to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio.

Dustin Lee Lantz, 23, who has a Fayette address, was arrested Saturday, Nov. 18, at about 11:28 pm.

The officer wrote in his report that while he was on patrol, he ran the registration (license plate number) of a vehicle refueling at Archbold Main Stop. The request for information turned up warrants for the arrest of the owner of the vehicle.

After confirming the warrants with Fulton County sheriff dispatchers, the officer confirmed the identity of the subject refueling the car, determined positively it was Lantz, and placed him under arrest and took him to CCNO.


Zavala was wanted for failure to appear on charges from March. Information available through the Defiance Municipal Court website indicates she had originally been charged with speeding, DUI, child endangering, and two counts of possession of marijuana.

She pled guilty to each of the charges, and was fined.

After failing to appear, warrants were issued. She was booked into CCNO, where she posted bond. A date for a court hearing was set for Nov. 30, and her bond was continued.


In Fulton County, Lantz had been charged with complicity to commit a crime and no valid operator license. Cases were filed in September and November 2016, respectively.

Information available from the Fulton County Western District Court website states after pleading guilty in February, he failed to appear in November and a warrant was issued. He was booked into CCNO. A new hearing date was set for January 2018. He was released on his own recognizance.

In Sylvania Municipal Court, Lantz, who then had a rural Pioneer address, was charged with theft. Information from that court website states a case was filed in March 2016. Following a July 2016 court date, a warrant was issued for failure to appear.
