On 27 Dec 05 Deputy Sheriff Spencer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Charles E. Day Jr., age 22, 830 Mount Tom Road, Marietta, after observing Mr. Day spin his truck’s tires as he began traveling northbound on State Route 7. Noticing an odor of alcohol on Mr. Day and an open can of beer on the floorboard of the vehicle, Deputy Spencer administered field sobriety tests. Following Mr. Day’s poor performance on the tests he was arrested for OVI and transported to the Washington County Jail.

On 27 Dec 05 an employee of White Oak Dental, 8400 State Route 339, Barlow, reported the business received a bad check for eighty-nine dollars on 22 Nov 05. This case remains under investigation (8411).

On 27 Dec 05 Deputy Sheriff Mankins responded to a disturbance between Benjamin Caplinger, age 35, and his wife Michelle, age 32. Angry at his wife’s alleged infidelity, Mr. Caplinger seized his wife’s cell phone and would not return it. The dispute continued as Mrs. Caplinger broke CD’S dishes and a game controller before being locked out of the house and breaking a window. Citing the absence of threats and the roles of each party in the dispute, Deputy Mankins requested summonses for Mr. and Mrs. Caplinger for disorderly conduct by fighting.

Two Arrested for Sale of Drugs within 1000 feet of a school

On 27 Dec 05 members of the Washington County Major Crimes Task Force arrested Richard Thompson, age 42, 1101 Colonial Drive, Marietta, and Amy Thompson, age 36, 1101 Cisler Lane, Marietta, for their involvement in narcotics trafficking operation. The arrests are the culmination of an investigation during which a confidential informant purchased fifty-five one milligram Klonopin tablets and nineteen forty milligram Oxycontin tablets from Ms. Thompson and Mr. Thompson, respectively. Also during the investigation, Detectives executed search warrants at Thompson’s residences on 20 December 05 and recovered a number of items leading them to believe the Thompsons were selling drugs in exchange for property that had been stolen during house burglaries and from local area merchants.

Klonopin is a Schedule IV controlled substance and Oxycontin a Schedule II controlled substance, the sales of both of which are second degree felonies. But because Colonial Terrace Apartments are within 1,000 feet of a school, the severity of the offense escalates to a first degree felony, punishable by three to ten years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

The Washington County Major Crimes Task Force is a multi-faceted organization consisting of members of the Marietta and Belpre City Police Departments, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification, the Department of Public Safety Investigation Unit, the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office and the Washington and Morgan County Sheriff’s Offices. The Thompsons are being held in the Washington County Jail without bond until their appearance in Marietta Municipal Court on Wednesday morning.
