On 8 Jun 09 a fifteen year old Beverly resident reported being assaulted by her mother’s boyfriend while he visited their residence that evening. The teenager said her mother’s boyfriend, Allan R. Ross, age 50, 4683 State Route 60, McConnelsville, verbally demeaned her mother throughout the night and she told him to leave the residence. Moments later an argument ensued between the teenager and Mr. Ross, during which time Mr. Ross grabbed the juvenile by both arms. Clutching a paper towel holder for protection, the teenager said she did not strike Mr. Ross and that he again grabbed her arms and then pushed her into a kitchen counter. The teenager broke free, but not before Mr. Ross stuck her in the head with his elbow. Placed under arrest for assault, Mr. Ross was found in possession of a bag of marijuana and rolling papers (296, 610).

On 8 Jun 09 Deputy Sheriff Travaglio requested a summons for Elyse Kornmiller, age 20, 612 Masonic Park Road, Marietta, for telecommunications harassment. Questioned by Deputy Travaglio about a phone call made on 28 May 09, Ms. Kornmiller admitted phoning an acquaintance and leaving a voicemail that was profane and threatening. Ms. Kornmiller said she was upset with the victim and did not intend to carry out any of her threats.

On 8 Jun 09 Sarah McLeish, age 24, 424 Fifth Street, Lowell, reported her husband became upset during an argument, threw a chair and broke a ceramic bank on a shelf in their residence. Also during the squabble, Mrs. McLeish said her husband saw her using the phone, grabbed it from her hand and threw it into their yard. Citing the fact that Mrs. McLeish was not in fear for her safety, Deputy Sheriff Reynolds closed this case as unfounded (1104).

On 8 Jun 09 the Warren Fire Department transported a forty-two year old Marietta resident to Marietta Memorial Hospital following a suicide attempt. Coherent but groggy when Deputy Sheriff Smeeks arrived, the victim said she ingested eight Ambien pills in an attempt to kill herself. At the hospital the victim voluntarily checked herself in for treatment.

On 8 Jun 09 William A. Ruggieri, age 75, 460 Old Beavertown Road, New Matamoras, reported sometime while he was on vacation between 22 and 27 May an unknown suspect(s) entered a storage building on his property and stole a lawnmower, a cable compressor, a slide saw, a post hole digger and a nail gun. Mr. Ruggieri estimates the stolen items were worth over $2,000. This case remains under investigation (805).

SUSPECTS ARRESTED FOR SELLING CRACK COCAINE

Utilizing a confidential informant, Agents from the Washington County Major Crimes Task Force arranged to purchase nearly one ounce of crack cocaine this evening at the Indian Acres boat ramp in Marietta. The undercover operative purchased over 20 grams of crack cocaine for $1,500. Following the buy-bust operation, Officers from the Marietta Police Department conducted a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle occupied by Eric E. Townsend, age 27, 9974 Hartwell Street, Detroit, MI, and Michael J. Broadnax, age 22, 318 S. Cypress Avenue, Columbus. During the traffic stop Agents recovered the $1,500 in buy money, which Broadnax had concealed between his buttocks. Broadnax and Townsend were arrested for second degree felony charges of trafficking in crack cocaine and incarcerated in the Washington County Jail. Being held without bond, Broadnax and Townsend are due to appear in Marietta Municipal Court tomorrow afternoon.

The quantity of crack cocaine seized during the controlled buy represents a substantial amount, as the number of single dosage units contained in over 20 grams is approximately fifty. Those fifty dosage units in turn have a street value of approximately $5,000. This is another example of individuals from larger cities transporting narcotics into the Mid-Ohio Valley due to the demand and higher prices being paid in this area.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:
