MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — A 70-year-old northeast Ohio man has pleaded not guilty to a charge of receiving stolen property for allegedly accepting cash from a 13-year-old boy accused of stealing $25,000 from his grandfather.

The charge accuses the man of accepting less than $7,500. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Medina.

Prosecutors say the man and his wife received the cash from their 14-year-old grandson, who accepted it from the 13-year-old. The man's wife and a 31-year-old woman also have been charged with receiving stolen property and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Some money was recovered. The two teen boys are also facing juvenile charges.

The man's attorney couldn't be immediately reached for comment
