On 7 Feb 07 Jessica D. Beaver, age 24, 173 Riverview Estates, Saint Marys, reported she was driving a friend’s truck on 31 Jan 07 when her ex-husband Joshua A. Beaver, age 27, 103 Evans Street Apt. 3-11, New Matamoras, spotted her and followed her to the Newport IGA. In the parking lot, Mr. Beaver exited his vehicle and punched the windshield of the truck his ex-wife was driving, cracking it. When Mr. Beaver failed to pay the damages as promised Ms. Beaver reported the crime. As a result, Deputy Sheriff Morris requested a summons for Mr. Beaver for criminal damaging.

On 7 Feb 07 Deputy Sheriffs Collins and Eddy responded to a distress call at the residence of Ronald Selsor, age 46, 2020 Bear Run Road, Reno. What sounded like a request for a squad was actually a request for a squad car by Mr. Selsor, for the reason that he suspected his live-in girlfriend was stealing his food. Since Mr. Selsor was heavily intoxicated and rambling incoherently Deputy Collins closed this case as unfounded.

On 7 Feb 07 the Sheriff’s Office received a call from Joshua Paul Seagraves, age 24, 122 Tennis Center Drive, Apartment 22, Marietta concerning the right rear tire sidewall on his 2000 Ford Taurus has been cut with a flat sharp object. This case is under investigation (529).


On 7 Feb 07, Agents of the Major Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at the residence of Kenneth Shapiro, age 51, and his wife Mary, age 60, at 604 Second Street, Marietta. Acting on an anonymous tip, Agents learned the Shapiros were receiving an abnormally large quantity of prescription medications through various mail services and that the couple was possibly selling some of the drugs. With the assistance of local UPS and FedEx officials, Agents determined over a month between December 2006 and January 2007 the Shapiros received drug shipments from more than six online pharmacies. The Shapiros also utilized local pharmacies throughout last year to fill prescriptions for drugs such as Xanax, hydrocodone, Darvocet and Ritalin as well as other non-narcotic drugs. Seized during the search warrant was myriad evidence related to Agents’ suspicions, specifically, empty FedEx and UPS boxes, prescription forms, mail order receipts, empty and full prescription pill bottles and other drug paraphernalia. Task Force Agents estimate the Shapiro’s received over 12,000 hydrocodone pills through online pharmacies. Evidence obtained will be forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office for possible presentation to grand jury. This investigation was conducted in conjunction with the Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Devin Michael Haynes, age 21, 15 Walnut Street, Belpre, for violating the terms of his probation, a misdemeanor. Haynes was arrested at the office of Probation Officer Brockmeier and processed into the Washington County Jail on 7 Feb 07 at 4:41 pm.
