NORWOOD, Ohio - Three suspects in an Indiana burglary are behind bars after Norwood police say they located them using a tracking device inside an allegedly stolen iPad.
Lydia Ramirez, 31, Marvin Ramirez, 23, and Marjorie Reed, 29, all from Cincinnati, were arrested Friday and charged with possession of stolen property. Both Lydia and Marvin Ramirez will face additional charges in Indiana. Reed’s involvement in the burglary is still under investigation.

Using the same tracking tools, Lt. Lou Pauly with the Norwood Police Department says officers located and pulled over a Chrysler van on the Norwood Lateral on Friday.
