COLUMBUS — An Alaska man is accused of defrauding people in Ohio and other states of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Andrew Jensen, 30, of Anchorage, was arraigned Monday in Morgan County Common Pleas Court in McConnelsville, about 82 miles southeast of Columbus.
He is jailed in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville following his indictment by a Morgan County grand jury on 29 felony counts, including telecommunications fraud, identity fraud, grand theft of a motor vehicle, theft from the elderly, money laundering and misuse of credit cards, according to a release from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

DAYTON — A thief used a truck to break into the Citizen Mart and pull its ATM out of the ground Tuesday, continuing a recent trend of ATM thefts from area convenient stores, according to a Dayton police report.
Police were called around 5 a.m. to the convenience store, 4567 Germantown Pike, on a breaking and entering call.
One of the store’s double doors was ripped off the hinges and the other had the glass broken out.
The top part of the ATM was sitting just inside the double doors and the lock was cut off the roll-down cage, the report said.
The bottom part of the ATM was missing. The amount of money taken was not made available.
The theft is at least the fourth ATM theft from a Dayton convenience store in recent months.
The Estridge Market on Hoover Avenue was burglarized and damaged twice in recent months while someone targeted the ATM there.
Four Points Market on Gettysburg Avenue also has had its ATM targeted by thieves recently.
Thieves also hit the Crown Drive-Thru on West Third Street recently, where the cash machine was pulled through the front doors of the business.
Police attempted to locate the suspect vehicle Tuesday morning, a black Dodge Ram truck, that had reportedly headed north toward downtown after the incident but were unsuccessful.
