A New Richmond man is behind bars again, one month after being released on an OR bond for breaking into the Laurel Country Store.

Jason D. Sprague, 22, of 223 Front Street in New Richmond, was arrested for a pair of breaking and enterings, according to the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.

On Feb. 16, Sprague was arrested after he was caught by Cincinnati Police attempting to sell cigarettes that had been stolen the night before from the Laurel Country Store. In all, about $450 in case and 32 cartons of cigarettes had been stolen in that heist, totaling around $2,700 in stolen property.

One month to the day after his release on that charge of breaking and entering, Sprague was arrested by the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office during the investigation of two breaking and enterings on March 16.
