An area man who went to prison for violating his local probation is accused of fleeing authorities.

Za Quan R. Bolling, 20, of Wellington, is charged with failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer. The third-degree felony is punishable by nine months to three years in prison.

Bolling also faces a misdemeanor, operating a motor vehicle or motorcycle without a valid license. Court records indicate each charge is in connection with a Nov. 19 incident handled by the state Highway Patrol.

A Huron County grand jury issued the indictment Friday.

On March 8, 2017, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway sentenced Bolling to nine months in prison for violating his probation. The defendant had been kicked out of a community-based corrections facility, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.

Bolling’s underlying offense was breaking and entering. He was convicted of breaking into the Norwalk Rich gas station. The Norwalk Police Department arrested him the day of the incident, Sept. 14, 2016, and recovered several packs of cigarettes, cigar cartons and other items on him.

In a separate indictment, Stephen D. Dunlap, 40, of 102 N. Pleasant St., was charged with receiving stolen property and two counts of forgery. Court records indicate police investigated one of the suspected forgeries from June 29.

Dunlap has a recent conviction through common pleas court. On Nov. 6, he pleaded guilty to aggravated possession of drugs in exchange for the dismissal of obstructing official business. The incident happened April 14. Dunlap will be sentenced Jan. 10.

Other suspects who were indicted Friday are:

• Dustin S. Bolding, 26, of 7 Marian Drive, on aggravated possession of drugs

• Cody J. Jenkins, 26, of 408 S. Old State Road, Apt. 31, on one count each of aggravated trafficking in drugs, aggravated possession of drugs, possession of LSD and possessing drug abuse instruments. His indictment indicates that if he’s convicted, he might have to forfeit a cell phone and scale to the state.

• Robert A. Sams, 19, of 99 N. Hester St., on aggravated trafficking in drugs

• Thomas M. Wagner, 29, of 57 Linwood Ave., on one count each of trafficking in heroin and trafficking in counterfeit controlled substances
