On 23 Feb 10 Sam L.

On 23 Feb 10 Angela Miller, age 39, 4746 Federal Road, Coolville, reported her daughter Jaemason E. Clegg, age 18, went on a tirade following a dispute over a mobile phone and struck her in the face. As Ms. Clegg’s outburst continued, she retrieved a kitchen knife, charged toward her aunt and mother and threatened to cut her mother’s throat. Her attack briefly thwarted, Ms. Clegg repeatedly stabbed walls and countertops until the knife finally broke. When Ms. Clegg’s aunt and brother attempted to restrain her again, Ms. Clegg fiercely resisted and punched each of them several times. The family eventually forced Ms. Clegg outside and awaited assistance inside the home. Based on the statements of the victims and evidence at the scene, Deputy Sheriff Anderson arrested Ms. Clegg for three counts of domestic violence and transported her to the Washington County Jail.

Starkey, age 42, 99 Bae Circle, Marietta, reported she parked her vehicle at her employer’s lot on Starlite Drive at 2:15 pm and when she returned to her vehicle at 5:05 pm she discovered a window was shattered and her purse was missing from behind the driver’s seat.

On 19 Feb 10 Major Warden of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received information from a confidential informant that Warren A. Garner, age 55, 494 Beach Drive, Belpre, made credible threats to kill an Ohio Adult Parole Officer (APO) in Washington County. Further investigation revealed that Mr. Garner was upset that the APO was possibly going to send his daughter to prison and that Mr. Garner planned to shoot the APO along with the APO’s family. In addition, the informant provided detectives with a recorded conversation during which Mr. Garner states that he has researched the APO’s address. Furthermore, the informant reported Mr. Garner planned to reconnoiter the area around the APO’s home for a good location to shoot the APO. During subsequent conversations Mr. Garner mentions to the informant his intention to buy a weapon that could not be traced to him and that he may also rent a vehicle to commit the murder.

The informant relayed information to detectives that on 22 Feb 10 Mr. Garner asked him to drive past the residence of the APO. Detectives monitored the APO’s residence as the informant drove Mr. Garner past the residence and subsequently initiated a traffic stop. In his possession, Mr. Garner had computerized directions he obtained to the APO’s residence. When interviewed, Mr. Garner denied making any sort of threat and said he was only interested in seeing what kind of person the APO who is in charge of his daughter is. Thereafter, Mr. Garner was arrested for a first degree felony charge of conspiracy to commit murder and transported to the Washington County Jail.

Garner remains incarcerated without bond and is scheduled to make his initial appearance in Marietta Municipal Court at 1 pm.
