On 18 Aug 09 Melody A. Keene, age 55, 16785
County Nine Road, New Matamoras, reported two days ago her
housemate Melissa J. Flesher, age 34, took her vehicle without
permission and had not yet returned it. Investigating a tip
on the vehicle’s location, Lt. Gherke and Deputy Sheriff
Holbert observed the 1993 Buick Regal outside a residence on
Barber Street in Marietta. Found inside a residence, Ms. Flesher
admitted taking the vehicle and said she planned on returning
it but stated someone stole the keys earlier that day. Therefore,
Ms. Flesher said, she had a friend hotwire the car so it could
be driven. Ms. Flesher further elaborated that she consumed
alcohol throughout the evening and was currently not in a condition
to drive the vehicle. As a result of their investigation, Deputy
Holbert requested a summons for Ms. Flesher for the unauthorized
use of a motor vehicle and for criminal mischief.
