Man pleads not guilty to burglary

WARREN — A man accused of attempting to break into an occupied home on Parkman Road NW at 4 a.m. Wednesday pleaded not guilty to a felony burglary charge during an arraignment before Warren Municipal Court Judge Terry Ivanchak.

Gerry D. Albers, 64, 321 Tod Ave. NW, was identified as a suspect who attempted to climb into a window at the Parkman Road house before he was noticed by the resident, according to a police report.

Albers was assigned a $25,000 bond and is required to return for a preliminary hearing before Ivanchak on July 25, court records show. He remained at the Trumbull County Jail Wednesday night.

The resident described the burglar as an older male with long shoulder length hair dressed in a grey top and grey shorts. After running away, the suspect, later identified as Albers, was seen walking toward the Red and White grocery store at Parkman Road and Market Street, the police report states.

$1 million bond set in robbery

CORTLAND — The man accused in the Monday morning robbery of Valley View Food Mart on South High Street is being held at the Trumbull County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Court records show Clayton Felder Jr., 20, of Youngstown, had his bond set at an arraignment hearing Wednesday in Central District Court. No further court dates have been set.

A tip from the public resulted in Felder’s arrest after surveillance video of the suspect was shared with local news media and on the police department’s Facebook page.

Police said they received a tip from the public that Felder was at his girlfriend’s house in Bazetta and he was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon on an aggravated robbery charge as well as on several felony warrants out of Cuyahoga County.

Felder confessed to the robbery at the Cortland police station, police said.
