WARREN - Officers arrested four people, one of whom was a teen, breaking into a vacant home at 586 Woodbine Ave. S.E., according to a police report.
Charged with breaking and entering about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday were Maria Graham, 19, of Burton Street S.E.; Andrea Person, 19, South Feederle Avenue S.E.; Bennie Robinson, 19, Baker Avenue S.W.; and an unnamed juvenile, who was released to his mother.

sues over billboard veto
WARREN - A Girard advertising business has filed a lawsuit against the Howland Township Board of Zoning Appeals, challenging a recent decision that prevents the company from erecting a new billboard.
Lamar Advertising, 1063 Trumbull Ave., filed the lawsuit Tuesday, claiming the Nov. 1 decision is ''unconstitutional, illegal, arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.''
The board was affirming an earlier decision by the zoning inspector.
Lamar owns a billboard on the north side of East Market Street, west of the intersection with Rosegarden Drive, and sought to erect or change the sign to a digital-electronic billboard, which the township says is against code that prohibits flashing or intermittent lights.
Man sent to prison
WARREN - A 28-year-old Leavittsburg man was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to a series of burglary charges.

Trumbull County sheriff's deputies charged Harris, who was arrested May 30, with recent burglaries in Howland, Mecca, Bloomfield and Bristol townships.
