Rudy A. Guzman, 34, rural Napoleon, has been charged with theft after admitting to stealing $24 worth of clothing from the Archbold Dollar General store.
Police were informed of the theft about 7:05 pm, Sunday, Sept. 13. A witness provided police officers with a license plate number and description.
When officers pulled the vehicle over, the driver, Jorge Luis Maldonado, 39, Archbold, was discovered to have an expired license. Maldonado could not produce an Ohio insurance card, and a computer check of state records produced no information.
Maldonado was issued a citation for no operator license.
When officers questioned Maldonado about a theft at Dollar General, Guzman, a passenger in the vehicle, said he took the clothes, identified as four pair of sleepwear bottoms, valued at $24.
Guzman told officers he did not want anyone else to get into trouble for his actions.
He was issued a summons in lieu of arrest.
The Cleveland Indians were named in honor of Louis Sockolexis, a native Maine Indian who was the first American Indian to play professional baseball. Prior to that the team was known as the Spiders.
