Brothers arrested for Kent burglary

By Thomas Gallick | Staff Writer Published:

Twin brothers are facing felony burglary charges following a recent incident at a home near the northwest edge of Kent State University's campus.

Kent police arrested Adam R. Dombroff, 25, of 7053 Heathwyck Road in Maumee, and Andrew G. Dombroff, 25, of 1325 S. Water St. in Kent, at about 1:30 a.m. and charged both brothers with burglary, a second degree felony, after the pair allegedly kicked in doors and took property out of a home in the 200 block of East College Avenue. According to KSU records, Andrew G. Dombroff is a senior nutrition and food major at KSU.

"There were a lot of exterior and interior doors damaged -- kicked in," said Kent police Lt. Jim Prusha. "(There was) a lot of missing property, a lot of which was recovered in the vehicle they were driving."

He said the details of what the brothers allegedly stole from the house are not being released to the press because some of the items have not yet been identified and claimed by their owners.

Prusha said the house may have been targeted because there was little visible activity inside Sunday morning.

"It sounds like there was hardly anybody (at the house)," Prusha said. "There was one person home who called us."

Prusha said police officials have not linked the brothers to any other burglaries in the area. He said the police are more likely to be called to the area, popular among student renters, after residents report theft following a large party.

According to Portage County court records, Judge Barbara Oswick set bail at 10 percent of $50,000 for each of the Dombroff brothers Monday. Both brothers were being held at the Portage County jail pending future court dates.

  • SoWhat, they added the 2nd photo after my comment. Initially it was just the blanket guy.

  • The proud parents would like to announce the birth of twins......25 years later....omg...I hope our friends and neighbors don't see this !!

  • I see two mug shots Jermann. I bet their family is proud. I just don't understand this generation. (OMG I sound like my Grandmother) They have opportunities that can help them succeed, but yet they will not take it on and work for it. I know stealing is easier but there is always a price to pay for that. Stupid kids!

  • Did RC only post one mug-shot because they're twins?
