ARREST FOR CONSPIRACY TO MURDER PAROLE OFFICER
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.
