A Summit County man is free on bond after his arrest by Ravenna police for allegedly breaking into a Ravenna bar and stealing money meant for charity.

Anthony V. Lombardi Sr., 41, of 1507 Meadowbrook Blvd., Stow, was arrested Jan. 8 and charged with one count each of breaking and entering and theft, both fifth-degree felonies

Lombardi allegedly broke into the Town Tavern, 234 W. Main St., on Dec. 29, according to Ravenna police. Once inside, he allegedly stole $5 in quarters intended for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a charity that fights blood cancers, according to a criminal complaint filed by Ravenna police on Dec. 31.

Lombardi was arraigned Jan. 9 in Portage County Municipal Court in Ravenna. He was released from the Portage County jail on a personal recognizance bond, pending future court dates. Conditions of his bond are no contact with the Town Tavern and no consumption of alcohol or drugs.

Court records did not list an attorney for Lombardi as of Jan. 9. A preliminary hearing on the felony charges is set for 9 a.m. Jan. 18 in Judge Kevin Poland's courtroom in Ravenna.
