Teens from Marietta, Beverly Arrested in Germantown Road Home Burglary

Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says a nearly week long burglary investigation has ended with the arrest of Branden Ramage, 19, of Beverly and Kyle Hesson, 18, of Marietta.
 
They were arrested in Belpre on felony charges of burglary and possession of criminal tools, in connection with the forcible entry of a home on Germantown Road on April 10. The suspects allegedly stole gold jewelry, a coin machine with 35 dollars in change, a digital camera and a jigsaw.  
 
Once Ramage and Hesson were identified as suspects, Mincks says deputies were able to identify gold wedding bands that were stolen from the residence and sold at a jewelry shop in Belpre.  
 
Additionally, a search of Hessonís truck resulted in the discovery of a digital camera, eight necklaces, a coin sorter and a jigsaw case. Hesson also showed deputies a tire tool that was used to enter the home.  
 
Under questioning, the sheriff says Ramage and Hesson admitted being at the property where the crime occurred, but each accused the other of being the one who entered the home.
 
The suspects were also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after six marijuana pipes were found in Hessonís truck.  
 
Both teens are in the Washington County Jail in lieu of $37,500 bond each.
