Restaurant owners’ son indicted

The son of local restaurateurs who prosecutors allege broke into their restaurant and cracked the safe late last month, plus three men alleged to have been involved in a riot two weeks ago, were indicted by a Clark County grand jury Monday.

Daniel C. Collier, 41, of 1429 Linden Ave., was indicted on felony charges of safe-cracking and breaking and entering at Collier’s Family Restaurant on March 28.

Clark County sheriff’s deputies responded to the German Twp. restaurant on an alarm and found the person had used a brick to break out a window and had dragged the 500-pound safe into another room, but wasn’t able to open.

Security video showed Collier as the perpetrator, according to reports.

Three men are facing felony charges in the rioting case that sent one person to the hospital following a fight involving at least 20 people on Glenn Avenue on April 10.

Kyle R. Webster, 20, of 1625 S. Fountain Ave., and Ryan A. Rike, 18, and Jordan D. Rike, 23, both of 202 Glenn Ave., were each indicted on one count of aggravated riot.

Ryan Rike was also indicted on an escape charge.
