On 30 Jun 09 the Little Hocking Fire Department transported a six year old Washington, WV resident to Camden Clark Hospital for treatment to injuries suffered when he fell from a golf cart at Oxbow Golf Course. The child’s parents were sitting in the front of the golf cart while the boy and his brother stood and rode on the back of it. Taking a shortcut between two cart paths, the cart’s back tires slid on damp grass, causing the cart to turn sideways. The child fell from the cart and the rear tires ran over his legs. The boy is being treated for a possible broken leg and for facial lacerations (592).

On 30 Jun 09 Ronald D. Hoyt, age 55, 124 Federal Road, Little Hocking, reported he purchased a vehicle from a private party in August 2007 and despite his repeated requests the seller has yet to provide him with the title. This case remains under investigation (953).

On 30 Jun 09 Patricia A. Reeder, age 55, 34155 State Route 7, Newport, reported she wrote a check for $1,500 to an individual who offered to pave her driveway around noon the previous day. Ms. Reeder said five individuals in two black, nondescript trucks appeared and sprayed what appeared to be tar on her driveway, claiming the substance would expand to a thickness of two or three inches. The sprayed substance did not expand and Ms. Reeder was unable to stop payment on her check. This case remains under investigation (296).

TRAFFIC STOP RESULTS IN ARRESTS FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING

Following a vehicle traveling southbound on State Route 7 on 30 Jun 09, Deputy Sheriff Anderson observed the driver of the vehicle turn sharply onto Joe Skinner Road, swerving into the grass and back onto the roadway. A check of the vehicle’s registration revealed active warrants for the owner, Natasha M. Treadway, age 20, 114 Main Street, Shelby, OH. Stopping the vehicle, Deputy Anderson discovered the driver Rodrick D. Pettis, age 20, 1124 Stadium Drive, Parkersburg, also had active warrants for his arrest.

The active warrants for both Pettis and Treadway stem from controlled purchases of crack cocaine the Major Crimes Task Force conducted on 15 May and 16 May 09. At Kroger and then at Wal-Mart, a confidential informant purchased two grams of crack cocaine from Pettis on successive days for $250 and $200. During the first transaction, Treadway handed the crack cocaine to Pettis which Pettis then proffered to the confidential informant. The warrant for Treadway’s involvement in the second transaction results from the fact that Task Force Detectives observed Treadway driving Pettis to Wal-Mart to sell the crack cocaine to the informant.

Pettis is incarcerated on a third degree felony charge of trafficking in crack cocaine in the vicinity of a juvenile and on a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in cocaine. Similarly, Treadway is incarcerated on a third degree felony charge of complicity in trafficking in crack cocaine in the vicinity of a juvenile and on a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in cocaine. Both suspects are being held without bond pending their initial appearance in Marietta Municipal Court.
