DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Two people are in custody after what police call an attempted theft.

Police say the pair tried to steal a box truck from the lot of Dayton’s new racino off Wagner Ford Road.

Officers say while the pair were fleeing security, they crashed into the horse racing fence and damaged the track.

That track is scheduled to open in October.

The man and woman are now facing charges of grand theft auto and attempted felonious assault.
