CELINA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Mercer County man wanted for violating his community control sanctions was brought back to Ohio from Texas Friday.
Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey said Monday that on May 18, 2018, a man was booked into the Mercer County Jail after being transported back from Texas.
Michael E. Croyle, 53 and formerly of Celina, was arrested in Rusk County, Texas on February 13, 2018. After completion of his local charges in Texas, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by authorities at the Texas Department of Corrections to make arrangements to pick him up.
On May 17, two deputies from the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office flew to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.
The deputies took custody of Croyle at the Huntsville Unit of the Texas Department of Corrections and brought him back to be booked into the jail.
Croyle was arrested due to a bench warrant issued by the Mercer County Common Pleas Court on January 31, 2018. The warrant states Croyle failed to comply with community control sanctions.
His original charge was Aggravated Possession of Drugs, a charge which Croyle pleaded guilty to on September 30, 2016.
