Police Blotter: Man throws hammer at truck; man arrested while biking

It’s Hammer Time

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office received a call Monday from a woman regarding criminal mischief. The woman said a man threw a hammer at her truck.

She did not want to pursue charges but wanted a report on file in case another incident occurs.

Check Your Credit

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded Monday to a report of a stolen credit card being used at a restaurant at South Plains Road in The Plains. The man who reported his card stolen said it had been taken a few days before but had been used that evening.

Deputies investigated the card’s use and made contact with the suspect later in the shift. The suspect confessed to having found the card and using it. The caller did not wish to file charges, only wanting the card to be returned. 

Got him!

When on patrol Monday, Athens County Sheriff’s Office deputies saw a man with multiple warrants for his arrest riding his bike in The Plains. 

The man was arrested without incident and taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

Walk Home

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to Vore Ridge Road in reference to a suspicious man on the road looking at a house. When deputies arrived, they located the man and determined he was walking home from his brother’s house.

No criminal activity was observed, so deputies returned to patrolling.

Too Loud

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to Gibbs Road in Shade for a loud noise complaint. Deputies spoke with the homeowners, who said they would turn the music down.
