Blotter: Loud music reported; a heat pump stolen

Just ask me next time

Deputies from the Athens County Sheriff’s Office were called to The Plains over the weekend for a loud music complaint. 

The caller said she could hear her neighbor’s music through the walls of her apartment.

The neighbor said he would turn the music off.

Not new for long

Over the weekend, deputies responded to The Plains for a breaking and entering report. 

It appeared that someone had broken into a vehicle and stole a new pair of shoes. 

The case is still under investigation.

A little too eerie

Deputies heard chainsaws early Sunday morning near River Road in Stewart. 

The location the sound was coming from was found, and it appeared that the cut trees had already fallen.

The property owner was told about the incident and said he would look into it. 

Just trying to run errands

Deputies responded to the Go Mart in Coolville over the weekend. 

Belpre Police arrested a man with a warrant out for his arrest from the Athens County Sheriff’s Office. 

Deputies met with the Belpre officers at the Go Mart and transported the man. 

The man posted bail and was released. 

How’d they get away with that?

A Vore Ridge Road resident reported over the weekend that someone stole a heat pump from his residence. 

The heat pump was stolen sometime within the past three weeks. 

Is anyone there?

A deputy noticed a vehicle with its headlights on at a local business over the weekend. 

The deputy felt that this was not normal. Nobody was in the vehicle and the business did not show signs of forced entry. 

The vehicle was locked, so the headlights could not be turned off. 

No further action was taken.

Since when?

A deputy responded to the Cannonville area on Tuesday due to vehicle tags being stolen. 

The owner of the vehicle said it had been on the lot where it was parked for about three weeks before realizing the plates were gone. 

The tags were entered as stolen and a report was taken. 

Is this a scam?

A man called the sheriff’s office on Tuesday saying he thought he had been a victim of a scam. 

The man told the sheriff’s office that he was having computer problems and was contacted by who he thought was Microsoft. 

The man gave his credit card information over the phone to the caller. 

After the call the man realized it could have been a scam and canceled the transaction. 

The man didn’t lose any money. 


Deputies took a theft report on Tuesday regarding a catalytic converter being cut off of a vehicle. 

The vehicle was in the victim’s yard when this occurred sometime in the past week. 

The property owner had two suspects in mind who had been near the vehicle.
