On 7 Nov 05 Deputy Sheriff Parks investigated reports of items stolen from unlocked vehicles parked at 7200 State Route 821, Whipple and 8590 State Route 821, Lower Salem. The thief absconded with two crossbows and the Lowell Police Department badge and identification of Mike Gerber. This case remains under investigation.


On 7 Nov 05 Detectives Jenkins and Nohe of the Washington County Sheriff's Office and Marietta City Police Department, respectively, arrested Frankie Estep, age 40, 1935 Broadway Street, Stockport, for his eighth OVI and his third offense in four years. As the Detectives reached the intersection of County Road 206 and State Route 555 they observed Mr. Estep traveling southbound on State Route 555 and cross completely into the southbound lane. Making contact with Mr. Estep, Detective Jenkins noticed a strong odor of alcohol and that Mr. Estep slurred his speech and had glassy, bloodshot eyes. Mr. Estep exited his vehicle but refused to perform field sobriety tests and repeatedly gave false information pertaining to his identity. Exhibiting his recalcitrant behavior further once a baggie containing three Xanax pills was found in his pocket, Mr. Estep became combative and was forced to the ground by Detectives Jenkins and Nohe. Charged with a felony charge of OVI and misdemeanor charges of possession of drugs, driving under a suspended license, driving left of center and resisting arrest, Mr. Estep was transported to the Washington County Jail where he is being held on $3,925 bond pending his initial court appearance.
