Two Charged with Burglary in Bellefontaine


Bellefontaine Police were called to the 700 Block of Township Road 179 Thursday night for a reported burglary.

When officers arrived, the victim reported that two women, Marquisha Thomas, 40, of Bellefontaine, and Lorena Thomas, 16, of Bellefontaine, entered her home without permission while she was napping.

The victim also reports being threatened by the younger Thomas on social media due to the victim being friends with Lorena’s mother’s ex-girlfriend.

Video from a neighbor’s security camera showed portions of the interaction.

Both suspects were arrested, charged with burglary, and taken into custody. Marquisha was taken to Logan County Jail. Lorena was taken to Central Ohio Youth Center in Marysville.
