Man Who Trespassed At Evergreen Indicted

The man who allegedly trespassed into Evergreen High School– and sparked a review of security at Archbold and Pettisville– has been indicted.

Keith D. Seeman, 26, Swanton was arrested by Swanton police in Swanton, after he allegedly trespassed into Evergreen High School around 2:40 pm, Friday, Feb. 21.

Roy Miller, Fulton County Sheriff, said Seeman was questioned about his business while he was in the school.

He left the building and, despite calls to stop by the school resources officer– a sheriff deputy– Seeman reportedly fled in his car, striking a second car that was attempting to block him.

He was arrested shortly thereafter and transported to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, where he is still in custody.

In its Monday, March 16 meeting, the Fulton County Grand Jury handed down two counts of criminal trespass and one count each of trespassing in a habitation when a person is present or likely to be present, obstructing official business, criminal damaging, menacing by stalking, and inducing panic.

Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said in a press release, “On or about Feb. 12, (Seeman) allegedly trespassed in a habitation when a person was present or likely to be present; allegedly obstructed the performance of a public official’s lawful duties. On or about Feb. 21, he allegedly engaged in conduct that he knew would cause another person to believe that he would cause physical harm or mental distress to that person, while allegedly trespassing on premises where the victim was employed.

“He also allegedly caused serious public inconvenience or alarm by committing an offense in a school; he also allegedly entered a school knowing that he was restricted from entrance, and allegedly caused a substantial risk of physical harm to property.”
