Despite the jury’s verdict, a judge has decided that the car will be forfeited to the Richland County Sheriff’s Dept. Adam Bush was arrested last August.
Investigators contended that he pulled a large safe to a kayak that he’d taken from a resident of Lake Elsie and floated the safe to his car. Tire marks matched the tread pattern and other evidence linked Bush to the crime. State’s Attorney Ron McBeth says there were no witnesses to the burglary and the case was highly circumstantial.
