On 18 Feb 08 Deputy Sheriff Norman requested and received a warrant for Wesley R. Lloyd, age 38, 15764 Blank Pike, Wapakoneta, OH, for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The affidavit Deputy Norman filed requesting the warrant alleges that in January 2007 Mr. Lloyd, who is a registered sex offender in Auglaize County, engaged in sexual relations with a fifteen year old female from Marietta. The juvenile, now sixteen years old, stated she met Mr. Lloyd via the website in December 2006 and began phoning and text messaging each other. Mr. Lloyd then traveled to Marietta in January 2007 and that is when the incident occurred. Lloyd is being held in Wapakoneta, Oh under a $100,000 bond pending his return to Washington County.


On 18 Feb 08 the district manager for the chain of local BP gas stations reported to the Sheriff’s Office he discovered a number of irregularities while conducting an audit of the receipts of Hartley’s BP station in Beverly. The audit revealed a store employee, by voiding merchandise already sold and keeping the proceeds, was able to steal in excess of $35,000 from the store.

Detectives Hiatt and Schuck identified the suspect as the store’s manager, Johnny R. Baker, age 38, 98 Emery Lane Little Hocking, and interviewed him on 19 Feb. When questioned, Mr. Baker said he’s been voiding merchandise for the past year and was stealing between $500 and $1,000 per week. Mr. Baker further explained that he would return no money to the business and claimed he stole the money to support his dying ex-wife and four children. However, Detectives learned that Mr. Baker recently purchased a laptop computer, a truck and a motorcycle and also that he owed substantial interest payments to local check cashing establishments.

As a result of their investigation, Detective Hiatt forwarded a grand jury brief to the Prosecutor’s Office in support of a felony charge of theft. Presentation to a future grand jury is anticipated at the discretion of the Prosecuting Attorney. Baker remains free pending any future indictment.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:
