Garage worker investigated in Ridgeville

NORTH RIDGEVILLE – The city`s service garage superintendent was placed on paid administrative leave Monday and is under investigation, according to city officials.

Details of the allegations made against Chris Rangus in a police report filed Nov. 2 are not being released to the public because an investigation is pending, North Ridgeville police Capt. Allen Dent said.

Rangus, a North Ridgeville resident, has been the service garage superintendent for nearly four years. He returned from vacation Monday to be told about the investigation by Mayor David Gillock. He was placed on leave immediately.

North Ridgeville Law Director Andrew Crites also declined to discuss the allegations that prompted the investigation. He would say only that Rangus is on leave.

“How long will that be? That is subject to review by the administration,” Crites said, adding that the investigation shouldn`t take long.

“We expect the matter to be delivered to the prosecutor next week,” Crites said, who noted that county Prosecutor Dennis Will`s office will decide whether charges should be filed.
