New Philadelphia, Ohio (WJER) - Tuscarawas County’s prosecutor says three Cuban men charged in the credit card skimmer case out of Dover Township will have some more time before facing formal charges. 

Prosecutor Ryan Styer says the men requested a continuance during their preliminary hearing Thursday after hiring private attorneys for their cases. Styer says they are currently out on $15,000  bail until their next court date, which has yet to be scheduled.

“As soon as the bail was established, they posted the bond, and I had some concerns about them being from residences all the country, really, whether they would show up. But the did, in fact, show up, and that suggests they will show up at future hearings as well,” he says.

Styer says he will now decide how to move forward with seeking formal charges.

“It’s not been scheduled yet. Most likely, it’ll be scheduled within the next couple weeks, and we always have the option of going before the grand jury beforehand, and we may do that. I’m not positive on that yet,” he says. 

All three men are currently charged with breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony with a maximum possible sentence of 12-months in jail and a $2,500 fine.
