Blotter: Stolen firearm, identity fraud

How did this happen?

Athens County deputies spoke with the Shade Community Center manager over the weekend who said a third floor window had been broken.

The manager said it looked like a rock was thrown through the window.

There are currently no suspects, but patrol is being increased in the area.

All is well

Deputies were dispatched to a Canaanville Road residence over the weekend for a wellness check of an elderly woman.

The caller was concerned the woman did not have any food.

Officers made contact with the woman who said she was fine and had food. She also mentioned her son had just left after staying the night and mowing her lawn. 

False alarm

Over the weekend, deputies were dispatched for a business alarm that was set off on Carpenter Road. 

The alarm company notified deputies it was a false alarm while deputies were on their way to the scene. The deputies returned to patrol.

Missing something?

Deputies received a report over the weekend of a vehicle being parked on private property for over a week. 

Deputies tried to make contact with the owner of the vehicle but they were not able to reach them.

The vehicle was tagged to be removed after four hours. 

Stolen firearm

Deputies took a theft report regarding a firearm Monday from a resident in the Coolville area. 

The man said his firearm was taken from his vehicle and he noticed it was missing the day before. 

The man did not have a serial number for the firearm at the time of the report. 

Keeps getting worse

Deputies were asked to assist the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office Monday in regards to a stolen vehicle that was used in a burglary, which ended in a shooting. 

Deputies arrived in Meigs County and the scene was secure. 

Who let the dog out?

On Monday, deputies responded to State Route 550 for a reported loose dog in the road. 

The deputies did not find any loose animals. 

Another false alarm?

Deputies responded to an activated residential alarm in New Marshfield on Tuesday.

Deputies patrolled around the residence and determined there was no attempt at a forced entry. 

The alarm was determined to be false. 

Damaged mailbox

Deputies responded to Salem Road in Athens on Tuesday for a report of vandalism. 

When deputies arrived on the scene, the individual said their mailbox was damaged. 

A report was taken and the matter is under investigation. 

Not a normal shopping spree

Deputies took a report of identity fraud on Tuesday. 

The victim said someone obtained their Sam’s Club credit card and used it to make purchases, as well as change account access information. 

The case is under investigation.
