Brookfield police said they have withdrawn charges filed against a Sharon man, who was one of two men accused of stealing loose items from unlocked vehicles Nov. 20 on Superior Street in Masury.
Rawdale R. Atwood, 22, no longer faces charges of seven counts of theft and two counts of criminal mischief, which Trumbull County Eastern District Court Judge Marty Nosich dismissed May 12.
Police said they charged Atwood based on video footage taken of the suspects at a nearby store. Sgt. Aaron Kasiewicz said a closer examination of the video revealed differences between Atwood and the man in the video.
Charges are still pending against Scott E. Douglas, 23, of New Castle.
Police said an investigation into the identity of the man who was believed to be Atwood is continuing.
