This Is What You Get For Leaving The Keys In The Plane
A 20-year-old Medina
(OH) man is in the Ottawa County Jail after he was accused of
stealing an airplane and crashing into two parked cars at the
Put-In-Bay Airport (OH) Sunday morning.
Aaron M. Anderson was charged with receiving stolen property,
operating an aircraft under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
of abuse, reckless operations in an airplane and operating an
aircraft without a pilot's license.
The State Patrol said Anderson boarded a 1966 Erechcraft Model
35-C33A single-engine airplane, owned by Raymond Petor of
Westerville, at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, the patrol reported. The keys
were hidden inside.
The airplane traveled about 40 feet before it struck two parked
cars at the airport, the troopers reported. A suspect fled but was
caught by the Put-In-Bay Police Department. Anderson refused to
submit to a breath test to determine the concentration of alcohol
in his system, troopers said.
