VAN WERT — The man who was assumed to be the owner of the Black Swamp Bistro in Van Wert, Michael G. Johnson, was in court Friday after being arrested on two charges.

The 54-year-old Johnson was charged with theft, a felony of the fifth degree, and bigamy, a misdemeanor of the first degree.

According to information from the Van Wert Police Department, Johnson allegedly wrote a check without the implied consent of the business. The bigamy charge was also filed when it was found that Johnson has more than one wife.

A police statement noted that more charges against Johnson may be filed at the next meeting of the Van Wert County Grand Jury on Nov. 1. A request for further information from Van Wert Police Department was refused with no further comment made.
