On 1 Feb 08 Deputy Sheriff Mankins conducted a traffic stop after the driver of a truck nearly struck his cruiser when it traveled left of center on Warrior Drive. Deputy Mankins’ canine indicated the presence of drugs in the truck driven by James D. Reed Sr., age 50, 2000 Cow Run Road, Marietta. A pat down of Mr. Reed for weapons yielded a straw containing a white residue that Mr. Reed stated he used to snort crushed Oxycodone. As a result, Deputy Mankins arrested Mr. Reed for tampering with drugs, for driving left of center, for driving under a suspended license and for possession of drug paraphernalia and transported him to the Washington County Jail.

On 1 Feb 08 Ruth Erb, age 56, 217 Fourth Street, Lowell, reported her daughter Amanda Sampe, age 27, was upset following an argument over money and causing a disturbance.

Mr. and Mrs. Erb both said they feared for their safety at the time and also will be scared for their safety when Ms. Sampe is released from jail. At the time of her arrest Ms. Sampe refused to cooperate with Deputies Staats and Travaglio and screamed profanities as she was escorted from the home.
