COLUMBIA STATION, OHIO – There’s nothing worse than worrying if your neighbor is going to break into your home, steal your kids toys out of the yard or try to take the change out of the center console of your car in the middle of the night. Sadly, that’s what many are dealing with in the small town of Columbia Station all because of one woman. One woman who many say bring some of the areas worst individuals into their neighborhood at all hours of the night and a woman who continues to cause them grief and worry.
Brandi Basch has been terrorizing her neighbors and their neighborhood say many nearby residents. One neighbor stated “I feel like we are hostages in our own homes”, while another stated “there’s nothing but drug dealers and drug dealing and criminal men in the neighborhood at all hours of the night because of her”. Many local residents have filed protection orders to keep her out of the neighborhood. Items such as bikes & dirt bikes have come up missing or stolen, cars & houses have been broken into for months and the neighbors have had enough!
Basch who was just released from jail today after posting bond is now back into the community and neighbors are terrified of her return. She was just locked up in the Lorain County Jail for Passing Bad Checks, Falsification and Complicity. She was also arrested for breaking into one of her neighbors homes by video surveillance which caught her in the act. All of which has occurred in just the past few weeks and all the while she continues to occupy a home she has zero financial right to other than her name being on the deed (read that original story here: Brandi Basch – A Notorious Thief, Compoulsive Liar, Scammer, Cheater & Drug Addict).
“I feel like we are hostages in our own homes”
Basch has also robbed those whom were close to her. Individuals such as Tyler Ellis and Michael Jarvis (both live in boyfriends). She also robbed another boyfriend who was living in the house that isn’t hers. She’s also repeatedly put utilities into other individuals names without there knowledge. Jarvis was her first initial victim after the homeowners moved out. She also wrote a bad check to one of her ex’s grandparents who had let her borrow $1,500.00, alas, should come as no surprise – that check bounced – they are taking civil action in regards to that matter.
