On 20 Jan 09 Deputy Sheriff Spencer issued a citation to Robert M. Merrill, age 22, 122 Meadowcrest Lane, Little Hocking, for driving under a suspended license. Deputy Spencer stopped Mr. Merrill on State Route 7 near State Route 555 in Belpre Township.

On 20 Jan 09 a twenty-three year old Marietta resident reported for the past three days she has been receiving emails and phone calls from an acquaintance threatening to beat her up and to damage her vehicle. This case remains under investigation (1090).

On 20 Jan 09 Donna Glendening, age 46, 1600 Michaelis Road, Marietta, reported she believes 120 of her two and four milligram Dilaudid pills were stolen by one or more of the visitors she had at her home between 15 and 20 Jan. This case remains under investigation (712).

On 20 Jan 09 Peggy S. Farnsworth, age 21, 3995 Pleasant Ridge Road, Marietta, reported she feared for her safety during a dispute with her live-in boyfriend Michael S. Williams, age 32. Apparently upset that he did not receive a phone call from a relative because Ms. Farnsworth informed the relative she thought he was asleep, Mr. Williams instigated an argument. Initially the two pushed each other as they were lying in bed but then Mr. Williams jumped up and drew his fist back. Ms. Farnsworth said this caused her to believe Mr. Williams was going to punch her and injure her. In consequence, Deputy Sheriff K. Travaglio arrested Mr. Farnsworth for domestic violence and transported him to the Washington County Jail.


On 20 Jan 09 Deputy Sheriffs Anderson and S. Travaglio were dispatched to 1308 Williamson Avenue Apt. 6E. New Matamoras, in response to a domestic assault. Upon their arrival Kristy G. Cline, age 31, stated she was involved in an argument with her live-in boyfriend Calvin J. Martin, age 36, after she asked him to move out of their residence. Kristy said during the course of the argument Mr. Martin became increasingly angry and began choking her and twisted her wrist. Ms. Cline stated that she was able to break away from Martin and that while attempting to run from him he grabbed a semi-automatic AK-47 assault rifle and struck her in the back of the head with the butt-stock. Also threatening to kill Ms. Cline during the incident, Mr. Martin fled the residence with the rifle and a .45 caliber handgun. The Deputies recovered the rifle from the home of a relative of Mr. Martin though Mr. Martin and the handgun were no where to be found. Ms. Cline, who had red marks on her neck and bruising on her arm, was transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital by the New Matamoras Fire Department for treatment to a large swollen gash on the back of her head. Unable to locate the suspect, Deputy Anderson requested a warrant for Mr. Martin for felonious assault.

Update: Martin turned himself in to Sheriff's Deputies around 6:30 pm on 21 Jan 09.
