On 1 Aug 08 Deputy Sheriff Mankins stopped a vehicle for operating suspiciously in the vicinity of Sandhill Road and State Route 7. The driver of the vehicle, Tina S.

Performing poorly on field sobriety tests, Ms. Stevens was arrested for OVI. When transported to the Washington County Jail Ms. Stevens tested .182 BAC.

On 1 Aug 08 Officer Bear of the Department of Natural Resources reported witnessing individuals snorting pills and smoking marijuana while they fished along the riverbank near the intersection of State Routes 60 and 821. Unable to charge the suspects because they were not on state property, Officer Bear confiscated marijuana, a straw containing drug residue, Adderall and a marijuana bowl fashioned from a deer antler. Gaining confessions from the suspects, Deputy Sheriff Lockhart arrested Jason J. Feltis, age 27, 1883 Williams Highway, Williamstown, for possession of marijuana and for possession of drug paraphernalia and Michael S. Mellott, age 35, 174 Onward Road, Williamstown, for possession of Adderall, possession of marijuana and for possession of drug paraphernalia and transported them to the Washington County Jail.

On 1 Aug 08 Deputy Sheriff Carr arrested Brandon L. Hoffert, age 23, 108 Faye Avenue, Marietta, for obstructing justice. While on patrol on Hart Street, Deputy Carr saw Mr. Hoffert, who he knew had outstanding warrants. Ignoring commands to stop, Hoffert fled and was apprehended on Seventh Street.

On 1 Aug 08 Richard Petriken, age 60, 100 Tittle Run Road, Marietta, reported sometime during the past month an unknown suspect(s) discarded between ten and twenty used tires on his property. This case remains under investigation (684).

CAR FIRE LEADS TO ARREST

On 1 Aug 08 Deputy Sheriff Travaglio was dispatched to 146 Stone Quarry Road, Fleming, in response to a vehicle fire that members of the Barlow Volunteer Fire Department deemed suspicious. Fire personnel stated that this was the third vehicle fire involving Clarence Tullius, age 41. Furthermore, a witness at the scene said Mr. Tullius bragged about making money off an insurance claim he filed after a previous vehicle fire.

When questioned, Tullius stated when his mother woke him the front end of his 2000 Dodge Stratus was aflame and he rushed outside to remove his stereo equipment from the dash and trunk of the car. Mr. Tullius relayed the same story to an investigator from the Ohio State Fire Marshall’s Office. Confronted with the facts that none of the audio equipment smelled like smoke and that the equipment did not have evidence of being forcibly removed, Tullius admitted lying about the sequence of events. Tullius went on to say he removed the radio two days ago and that he removed an amplifier and speakers the night before the fire. Tullius further stated that the fire had started because he intentionally flicked a cigarette under the driver’s side tire into a pile of grass. Due to the fact that Tullius earlier signed an affidavit of declaration for an insurance claim that the fire was accidental, Tullius was arrested for falsification and transported to the Washington County Jail. Additional charges against Tullius, who was later released on a personal recognizance bond, may be forthcoming.
