Man accused of several Clark Co. thefts indicted

A Clark County man arrested in connection to several thefts from cars across the county has been indicted on multiple charges, including receiving stolen property, forgery and theft.

Jordan D. Briem, 34, turned himself last week after the Clark County Sheriff’s Office identified him as a suspect in the thefts. He has been indicted on 17 counts of receiving stolen property, 23 counts of forgery and theft charges.

Briem is accused of stealing credit cards from parked vehicles and homes, and according to the sheriff’s office, he used the stolen cards at several Speedway gas stations and other businesses in the Dayton and Springfield area.

A man that appears to be Briem was caught on camera using the stolen credit cards, investigators said.

Briem is booked in the Clark County Jail and is scheduled to be arraigned in a Clark County Common Pleas court later this week.
