A Strongsville City Schools maintenance foreman has been indicted on two counts, accused of stealing some $65,000 worth of property.

An anonymous tip alerted the state auditor’s office that Robert Schwerman was using school funds to buy equipment for himself. Among his purchases, Schwerman bought a furnace and air conditioner for his home as well as a $20,000 mini utility vehicle, according to Cuyahoga County prosecutor Michael O’Malley.
