On 3 Jan 10 residents in the area of Robert Kelly and Turkey Hollow roads in Cutler reported awaking to find damage to mailboxes and vehicles. Three seventeen year old Cutler residents were identified as suspects after a victim reported the father of one of the suspects was en route to one of the victims’ homes to repair damage to a mailbox. Interviewed by Deputy Sheriff Anderson, one of the suspects stated the two other suspects spent the night at his home and around midnight they decided to build a fire outside. Later in the evening, fueled by vodka mixed with grape juice and Old Milwaukee beer, the suspect said he drove his vehicle as the trio embarked on a damaging spree. Aside from damaging mailboxes, taillights and car windows with a tire iron, the suspect admitted the group entered the Cutler Post Office, broke lights and stole a sign and a trash can. As the group continued, they stole an iPod and charger from a mailbox and threw chunks of dirt at logging equipment, causing substantial damage to machinery. Despite the fact that Deputy Anderson did not interview the seven year old’s co-conspirators, he did speak to their parents, who said that their sons confessed their evening’s actions to them. Deputy Anderson has yet to file charges but will later request summonses for the teenagers to appear in Juvenile Court for being delinquent.

On 3 Jan 10 Jim Wheeler, age 40, 325 Smith Drive, Marietta, reported his son’s DK 6 Pack bicycle, valued at $300, was stolen from a storage shed on their property sometime between 22 Dec 09 and 2 Jan 10. This case remains under investigation (308).

On 3 Jan 10 George D. Erb, age 66, 217 Fourth Street, Lowell, reported he looked out a window after hearing a loud crash and observed the driver of a blue Oldsmobile pulling away after backing into the driver side of his 2008 Kia minivan. Mr. Erb said the driver, later identified as Jericho Pugh, age 20, 1490 Pugh Road, Stockport, pulled the vehicle back into a driveway across the street and fled on foot. Interviewed later that day, Mr. Pugh initially stated he was the driver of the vehicle but he later recanted and said someone else was driving. As a result of the incident, Deputy Sheriff Sheaves issued a citation to Mr. Pugh for reckless operation. Both vehicles sustained minor, nonfunctional damage.

The following individual was processed into the Washington County Jail:

Andrew Brooks Beaver, age 28, 100 West Chester Drive, Marietta, for failure to appear, a misdemeanor. Beaver was arrested near milepost two on Waterford Road by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and processed into the Washington County Jail on 3 Jan 10 at 5:15 pm.
