Police Blotter: Neighbor cuts grass without permission

In Athens County, no good deed goes unpunished.

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to call on Dutch Ridge Road for a trespassing complaint on Friday. The woman said her neighbor was mowing her lawn without her permission, according to a sheriff’s report.

She requested a trespass warning be filed due to other past issues. The complaint was filled out by both the woman and the neighbor. 

Taking a tumble

An Ohio University Police Department officer responded to a call about a student who received a head injury after falling outside Adams Hall at about 2 a.m. on Friday.

The student, 19, had a deep cut above his right eye. The officer said he smelled alcohol on the student’s breath, according to an OUPD report. Athens County EMS took the student to OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital. 

That report was one of three underage drinking citations OUPD officers issued over the weekend. Officers also wrote four citations for possession of marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia. 

Free parking

At about 1 a.m. on Saturday, a student was found lying on the ground in the lower Seigfred Hall parking lot. 

The student, 20, had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage “coming from his mouth” as he spoke to the officer, according to an OUPD report.

He was charged with underage drinking and released to a friend.

Unwanted camper

On Saturday, the Athens County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a trespassing complaint in Coolville about a man who was staying in a tent on the woman’s property without her permission, according to a sheriff’s report. 

Deputies were unable to contact the man. However, they told the woman that she could remove the tent from the property since she owned the property.

This CAN be a problem

On Sept. 27, deputies responded to a call about a man and woman creating a traffic hazard on State Route 13. When deputies approached the pair, the man said they were attempting to pick up cans for recycling to earn money, according to a sheriff’s report.

The deputies determined that the man and woman were creating a traffic hazard, since they were pushing a stroller down the highway. The pair left the area until “other arrangements could be made to obtain these cans in a safe manner.”

Forget something?

The sheriff’s office responded to a call about an abandoned vehicle at Ladd Ridge in Athens. It was determined the vehicle was left there for more than two months, and the resident wanted it to be moved.

The vehicle was tagged, and, after the four-hour minimum, was towed.
