On 13 Nov 09 Deputy Sheriff Smeeks requested a summons for Andrew Beaver, age 28, 211 Montgomery Street Apt. B, Marietta, for possession of drug paraphernalia. Arresting Mr. Beaver on a warrant from Franklin County, Deputy Smeeks found a hypodermic needle and a spoon with drug residue in Mr. Beaver’s pocket.


On 13 Nov 09 a Lower Salem resident reported an acquaintance of hers who is employed at the Lower Salem branch of Peoples Bank confessed to her in July that she withdrew a large sum of money from her account without permission. The victim stated she previously allowed Melinda S. Norris, age 47, 671 Baker Ridge Road, Macksburg, to withdraw money from her account as a loan and that Ms. Norris repaid the money. However, on this occasion the victim stated without consent, Ms. Norris withdrew $50,000 on 6 Jun 09 and $8,000 on 30 Jun 09. During a conversation between the victim and Ms. Norris which was monitored by Detectives Johnson and Parks, Ms. Norris twice admitted taking money from the victim’s account and commented that she needed the funds to pay for impending medical bills. Interviewed by the Detectives, Ms. Norris admitted withdrawing $50,000 but could not recollect withdrawing the $8,000. Though when shown a withdrawal slip with a signature matching that of the $50,000 withdrawal slip, Ms. Norris said she probably did withdraw the $8,000. As a result of their investigation, Detective Johnson arrested Ms. Norris for second and third degree felony charges of theft. After spending approximately a day in jail Ms. Norris posted $50,000 bail through a bondsman and was released.

The following individual wAS processed into the Washington County Jail:

Melinda Sue Norris, age 47, 671 Baker Ridge Road, Macksburg, for two felony counts of theft. Norris was arrested in Lower Salem by Lt. Johnson of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and processed into the Washington County Jail on 13 Nov 09 at 4:35 pm.
