Kent Police have arrested a Kimbolton, OH, man on charges he broke into two Kent car dealerships earlier this year.

Employees at Don Joseph Toyota reported to Kent Police Aug. 18 that several windows were broken and a TV was stolen from the West Main Street car dealership.

The dealership reported a 55-inch LG flat panel TV was stolen and three window panes were broken. All total, the dealership sustained $1,200 in theft and damage.

Leaster is connected to incidents from Aug. 18 and Aug. 24, according to police.

Earlier in August the Toyota dealership reported more than $500 in damage to cars on the car dealer's lot.

As of Thursday Leaster was being held in the Portage County jail on 10 percent of a $20,000 bond, according to Portage County court records.

He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on the charges today.
