Youngstown man pleads in theft case

WARREN — A Youngstown man pleaded guilty Monday to a felony theft charge linking him to the March 28 theft of two riding lawnmowers and other items from the Bazetta Walmart Supercenter.

Joshua Hunt, 36, 282 Forest Hill Drive, Youngstown, appeared before Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Peter J. Kontos, who will sentence Hunt after a background investigation done by the adult probation department.

Jail records show Hunt has been in custody since May 26. Kontos ordered he pay restitution to the store.

Hunt was one of three men accused of taking $2,896 in items from the Walmart, police reports show. Security video outside the Bazetta store caught a pickup truck leaving the area with the tractors and other items, including two sound bars and a television, shown in the bed.
