Blotter: Chair set ablaze; man thinks house is burning down

My house!

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to Carbondale Road on Tuesday for a dispute.

Deputies talked to the man who said he was fighting with multiple people, but deputies were given conflicting stories about what happened.

The deputies determined that one of the men was hallucinating and believed that his house was “burnt to the ground.”

He was transported to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Just the gas

A deputy responded to the Coolville area on Monday regarding a stolen vehicle being recovered.

The deputies determined that the vehicle was taken from a business and located on a road earlier in the morning.

The gas tank on the vehicle was removed, and the incident is currently under investigation.

Hear his voice

Deputies were dispatched to Carbondale on Sunday for a report of a man yelling in the roadway.

Deputies patrolled the area but they did not find the man.

Who is right?

Deputies were dispatched to New Marshfield Road on Jan. 31 for an incident report.

The caller said a man was staying in a camper on his mom’s property and he refused to leave.

The deputies spoke with the caller’s mother and she said that her son was allowing the man to stay in the camper, but the caller said the man had just shown up.

Since the mother and son had conflicting stories, deputies advised both of them to tell the man to leave.

The hot seat

Deputies responded to Carbondale Road on Jan. 31 for an alleged arson report.

The caller said someone had set a fire in his trailer while he was not home. 

Firefighters arrived at the trailer and extinguished a small fire on a burning chair.

No sources of the fire were determined, but the caller said he had multiple suspects in mind.

Not in Los Angeles any more

Deputies met at the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday at the county line to pick up 32-year-old Anthony Davis.

Davis had an active warrant out of Athens County on a previous charge.
