STONY RIDGE, OHIO — Wood County Sheriff’s deputies swarmed the home of Keith Sadler Friday morning in an attempt to force him out of the foreclosed property.
Sadler and five others barricaded themselves inside the Stony Ridge home five days ago in protest of his bank’s foreclosure of the US 20 (Fremont Pike) property. Sadler’s home was sold after he was unable to keep up with the payments. According to protesters with The Toledo Foreclosure Defense League (TFDL), Sadler exhausted all other options.
