Police Blotter: Neighbor aggravated by tractor; man unsure if items are stolen or lost

It’s possible to run your errands quickly. But if you do them too quickly, you could be mistaken for trying to rob a bank. 

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a possible bank robbery in the Plains June 16.

The caller witnessed someone pull into the bank driveway the wrong way, run inside, run back to the vehicle and take off at high speed. 

Dispatch made contact with the bank. Deputies found out that everything was fine, and it was just a customer paying their mortgage, according to the report. Deputies returned to patrol.

Stolen or misplaced?

Deputies responded to S. Plains Road for a report of a theft after a man came home from work to find items missing from inside his residence on June 15.

On the scene, the man said that there were no signs of forced entry, and the door was still locked when he got home. The man believed that he could have just misplaced the items. 

He told deputies he would look for the items “more thoroughly” and call back for a report if he found the items were actually missing, according to the report. No further action was taken.

Pot in the park

On June 20, the sheriff’s office was advised that there was a marijuana plant growing in a flower pot in the bush near a local park.

The area was checked, and no plant was found. It was assumed to have been moved, according to the report. 

Who let the dog out?

Deputies responded to an animal complaint on Harner Road on June 9. 

According to the report, the caller said that they believed that their daughter’s ex-boyfriend was repeatedly coming onto their property and setting their dog loose. 

A report was taken to document the incident in case it happened again. No further action was needed.

Noisy Neighbors
On June 15, the sheriff’s office responded to Sycamore Street for a noise complaint.

A man said that his neighbor had been making a lot of noise with demolition tractors, and it was “aggravating” him, according to the report. 

The man was told there is not a noise ordinance in the county. However, deputies made contact with the neighbor to let him know about the complaint.

Kid-napped canine 

On June 8, deputies spoke with a man on Maple Street who reported that his sister had taken his dog and would not return it.

Deputies made contact with the sister, who said she would return the dog once she finished making a collar for it. No further action was needed.
