Deputies arrest burglary suspect

Mendon-area man linked to crimes at area businesses

By Margie Wuebker
A Mendon-area man has been identified as a suspect in a rash of break-ins at area businesses throughout Mercer County and other jurisdictions.
Douglas N. Fonner, 27, 5922 Tama Road, was taken into custody late last week on a contempt of court bench warrant for violating bond conditions in a prior breaking and entering case.
Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey this morning said information from the local break-ins will be forwarded to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office for appropriate felony charges.
Local investigations allege Fonner forcibly entered Coldwater Grain North on Dec. 1 and took an undisclosed amount of money. He is also suspected of entering Mercer Landmark in Chattanooga and taking cash, tools and a television on Dec. 17.
On Jan. 5, Fonner allegedly broke into and took cash from Burkettsville Garage and cash, cigarettes, alcohol and televisions from Five Brothers Tavern, also in Burkettsville.
Fonner remains incarcerated at the Mercer County Detention Center. No bond has been set.
Fonner also remains a suspect in burglaries being investigated by authorities in Darke, Van Wert, Auglaize and Shelby counties.
