On 5 Nov 04 Lt. Canavan attempted to initiate a traffic stop on State Route 7 near Go Mart in Marietta after witnessing a vehicle leave the parking lot without turning on their headlights. The vehicle began to slow then accelerated and turned into the north access road toward the Lowe’s parking lot, then drove over the curb and struck a large embankment before coming to rest a short time later due to damage suffered during the collision. The two sixteen year old female passengers were transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital for medical treatment and issued summonses to appear in juvenile court after Lt. Canavan discovered bottles of Boone’s Farm in the vehicle.

On 5 Nov 04 Tira Thompson, age 41, 423 Schwendeman Hill Road, Lowell, reported her estranged husband allegedly violated a temporary protection order by driving slowly past her house at 10:20 pm that night. This case remains under investigation (586).

AMISH BUGGY STOLEN

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of an Amish Buggy from 25 Lakeview Drive, Vincent, Ohio, which is near the intersection of SR 339 and Lake View Drive. Lake View Drive leads into the North Lake Addition near Veto. The theft occurred sometime between 01 Nov 04 at 0800 and 08 Nov 04 at 1600. The buggy is an open top with a partial cloth seat. The buggy was missing the yoke, which is used to hook up horses. The buggy was probably loaded onto a flat bed truck or trailer. Anyone who may have observed this occurring is asked to call Deputy Sheriff Randy Stackpole at 740-376-7070 ext 33.

THEFT AND CHECK CASHING RING

On 30 Oct 04 the Washington County Sheriff’s office began an investigation concerning an organization of Hispanics (Mexicans) who had cashed over $60,000 of stolen checks at several area banks. These checks were stolen from Midway Machining of Marietta earlier last week and forged to appear as paychecks when cashing them.

We know there are at least one female and probably 10-15 males involved. We have been in contact with other jurisdictions where similar incidents have occurred and we believe this to be a roving cell that does this all over the country. We are asking for help to try to identify them and/or their vehicles.

These subjects were in the area for at least five days and had to stay somewhere and eat somewhere. One vehicle we believe they have is an older, full-size panel van, possibly a Dodge, which is blue and gray in color. The only windows on the side of this van are in the driver’s side and passenger’s side doors. The van is further described as possibly being primer gray. It has mag-style wheels and a wing on the top. Two weeks ago, this same organization infiltrated Virginia and the vehicle there was described as a white panel van. We have also been in contact with authorities in California and they advised that this type of activity has been going on for several years with cells originating in California and it is likely this group is working its way back to California.

If anyone has any information about these subjects, please contact Detective Mark Johnson, Washington County Sheriff’s Office at (740) 376-7070.
