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.
