Blotter: Student won't leave dorm; man has mail stolen from mailbox

Some people don’t know when to call it a night.

The Ohio University Police Department was called Sunday by Resident Assistants at Adams Hall.

A student was intoxicated in her room and would not leave. Officers found her leaving the area. She had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled like alcohol.

The student was arrested for underage consumption intoxication and criminal trespassing. She was transported to the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail.

Just a stroll

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to a well-being check Tuesday for a man in Coolville.

The man was not under the influence or in need of medical attention. He was just walking and deputies gave him a ride back to his vehicle in Coolville.

Ghost music

Deputies received a noise complaint Tuesday in The Plains early in the morning.

Deputies responded and sat stationary, but no music or any loud noises were heard at the time.

Driving school

Deputies responded Tuesday to a car wreck at Heiner’s Bakery in The Plains.

There were no injuries, but the elderly driver ran into the building, which was still structurally sound. The man hit the accelerator instead of the brake pedal on accident.

You don’t have mail

Deputies were contacted by a resident last Wednesday on Gun Club Road who said his mail had been stolen from his mailbox for the past three days.

There are currently no leads.


Deputies were called to Rainbow Lake Road in Shade Friday for a well-being check.

The caller said that his girlfriend was supposed to meet him, but he could not get a hold of her.

Deputies made contact with the girlfriend and she said she had just fallen asleep.

Just friends

Deputies responded to Shade Saturday for a possible burglary in progress.

Deputies talked to the man who was at the residence, and he said he was friends with the people who lived at the residence and was just trying to get in.

Paranormal activity

Deputies spoke with people staying at a hostel in Nelsonville Saturday about weird noises they heard coming from the basement.

They said the basement is where the owner of the hostel lives. There were no signs of distress from the voice.
