Longshore, Owens arrested on charges

Larry Longshore, who resigned as mayor of Cleveland, later resumed the office, and was finally removed from office by court order, was arrested on a two-count indictment last week. One count was for first degree theft and one was for conspiracy to commit theft.

Also arrested on the same charges was former Cleveland parks and streets superintendent Wayne Owens, who was also removed from his position, following Longshore’s forced removal from office.

Both men made bond and were released Friday pending trial. Arraignment will be in early December.
