The second of two co-defendants accused of breaking into golf courses in multiple counties entered a plea during a continued arraignment hearing last week.

Skyler L. Reisinger, 18, pleaded not guilty to four counts of breaking and entering and one count each of safecracking, grand theft when the property is a firearm or dangerous ordnance, receiving stolen property, theft and possessing criminal tools during a hearing on Friday.

Reisinger and co-defendant Joshua R. Blakely, 18, are accused of breaking into multiple Champaign County golf courses between Aug. 15 and Sept. 7.

Blakely pleaded not guilty to the same charges on Oct. 19. During that hearing Blakely was granted a personal recognizance bond and was ordered not to have contact with his co-defendant and another individual as ordered by the court, have no contact with any golf course in Champaign, Clark or Logan County, and observe a curfew of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Saturday.

Reisinger was also placed on a personal recognizance bond and ordered to have no contact with Blakely, any golf course in Champaign, Clark or Logan County, and observe a curfew of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Saturday unless he is working.

According to the Logan County Clerk of Courts website, both co-defendants were indicted on Oct. 11 in Logan County on six counts of breaking and entering and one count of possessing criminal tools related to similar activity against golf courses in Logan County. Both co-defendants have pleaded not guilty to the charges in Logan County.

Co-defendant in bank crimes pleads not guilty

The second of two co-defendants facing criminal charges for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from Security National Bank entered a plea during a continued arraignment hearing last week.

Kristie K. Shover, 46, pleaded not guilty to one count each of aggravated theft, receiving stolen property and tampering with records during a hearing on Thursday.

Shover and co-defendant Kristen S. Head, 34, are accused of stealing $391,000 from Security National Bank, 828 Scioto St., over a period of time dating back to 2009, according to an Urbana Police Division investigation.

Head pleaded not guilty to the same charges on Oct. 19. Both co-defendants were granted a personal recognizance bond and were ordered to have no contact with each other on the same day.

The grand jury indictment contends that the tampering with records charge stems from Shover and Head allegedly creating fraudulent transactions and altering bookkeeping or audit records of Security National Bank to conceal the theft of money from the bank.

Urbana Police Chief Matt Lingrell previously said Shover was terminated from her employment with the bank as its head teller on July 14. She had been employed with the bank since 2004.

Lingrell said Head had been employed at bank since 2001 until she resigned in 2014 as the bank’s office manager.
