The end of line for Jack Vasi and Mary Kay Szabo of Elyria was a Florida hotel aptly named The Reunion Inn. Federal marshals caught them late Thursday night. They skipped town in October instead of showing up for trial to face charges that they ran an illegal tire shredding business in Crawford County. The case there spun out of an illegal tire dump in Lorain County run by Vasi. A US Marshal says the pair paid cash for a hotel room they rented for a week. Investigators will take a hard look to see who, if anyone, helped the pair, including their mother, Lorain County Commissioner Mary Jo Vasi. Mary Jo Vasi says that she thinks her kids ran because, "They were scared of the sentence. Not only that, they knew what was goin' on with the case. They were going to get railroaded." The pair will probably be brought to Ohio within the next two weeks.
