On 26 Dec 08 Deputy Sheriff Smeeks issued a citation to Christopher W. McCabe, age 35, 1635 Braun Road, Belpre, for traveling 70 mph in a 50 mph zone. Deputy Smeeks stopped Mr. McCabe on State Route 7 near milepost seven in Blennerhassett Township.

On 26 Dec 08 a forty-seven year old Little Hocking resident reported when she searched her sixteen year old son’s bedroom she found a bag with what appeared to be marijuana residue in it and another bag containing prescription pills. Confronted at the home the juvenile claimed “he knew the law” and that “it was not illegal to smoke marijuana, just to possess it.” From the teenager’s bedroom and from a storage building on the property, Deputy Sheriffs Richards and Smeeks confiscated rolling papers, a marijuana pipe and another baggie with a marijuana bud in it. Remaining defiant after he tested positive for THC, the teenager had the impudence to ask when he would get his bong back because he said he spent $30 of his Christmas money on it. As a result of their investigation Deputy Richards requested a summons for the teenager to appear in Juvenile Court on delinquency charges of possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
