COLUMBUS (WCMH)–Russell “Rusty” L Oehlers pleaded guilty to charges of theft (M1) and safecracking (F4) in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday.
Deputies said Oehlers stole nearly $600 from Girl Scouts who were selling cookies outside a Fairfield County Walmart on March 6. Oehlers allegedly grabbed a cash box from the table the girls were working at and fled on foot, possibly into another vehicle waiting for him to flee.
He will be sentenced on Wednesday.
His alleged accomplice, Jeffrey Craig, has not been indicted in Common Pleas court. His case was dismissed by the prosecutor in Franklin County Municipal Court.
