• Nick L. Reed, 45, of Piqua, was arrested Thursday for allegedly stealing two residents’ groceries.
Reed was arraigned Friday morning on second-degree felony burglary. According to Miami County Municipal Court records, Reed reportedly entered a home on the 900 block of W. High Street on Thursday without permission and took all of the victims’ food. Reed claimed he did this because the victims’ power was out and did not want the food to spoil; however, the victims advised the power was not out at the residence.
