On 21 Jun 10 Lisa G. Gill, age 50, 1409 Pike Street, Marietta, reported her daughter Elizabeth D. Thompson, age 24, 743 Lancaster Street, Marietta, appeared at her home intoxicated the previous evening and initiated a confrontation. An argument ensued over a number in Ms. Gill’s mobile phone and Ms. Thompson shoved her mother onto a bed several times. Ms. Gill said her daughter yelled and asked her to hit her so they “could have matching jail cells.” Ms. Gill stated she suffered a minor cut to her nose when her daughter hit a cup of cold coffee she had in her hand. Deputy Sheriff Smeeks later located Ms. Thompson hiding in a wooded area on Alta Street in Marietta. Questioned about the incident, Ms. Thompson stated did not intend to hurt her mother but admitted to both shoving her mother and to hitting her mother’s hand and causing the coffee cup to strike her mother’s nose. As a result, Deputy Smeeks arrested Ms. Thompson for domestic violence and transported her to the Washington County Jail.

On 21 Jun 10 Diana L. Nice, age 42, 4542 State Route 669, McConnelsville, was operating a transit van owned by Morgan County while dropping off a patient at a doctor’s office at 151 Anderson Lane, Waterford. Ms. Nice failed to notice the height of a drive through area and struck the soffit with the roof of the van. The structure and the van both sustained light damage (597).

On 21 Jun 10 Sgt. Norman arrested a fifteen year old Belpre resident on a charge of delinquency by domestic violence. Traveling with his fifty-one year old father on State Route 339 near School House Road, the juvenile grabbed the steering wheel and attempted to jerk it to the side. The teenager’s father struck his son’s hand to regain control of the wheel and his son retaliated by striking him in the mouth. After he pulled to the side of the road the father said his son kicked him in the head so he exited the vehicle. The teenager gave chase and repeatedly kicked his father in the legs. When the father attempted to phone for help the juvenile usurped the mobile phone and slammed it to the ground. Arriving at their residence, the juvenile continued his tirade, screaming at the top of his lungs and overturning furniture. At one point the teenager told his father that he was going to cut his throat while he was asleep.

On 21 Jun 10 Richard Poole, age 35, 13815 N. Salvation Army Lane, Tampa, FL, reported he was traveling through Warren County, OH when he picked up a hitchhiker by the name of Ed, who said he was recently released from prison. Mr. Poole stated the two purchased alcohol and started drinking at room at the Aldeco Hotel in New Matamoras. Falling asleep at around 9:30 pm, Mr. Poole said he awoke fifteen minutes later and noticed his silver 2002 Pontiac Grand Am and Ed were both missing. Mr. Poole inventoried his belongings and discovered $1,500 in cash and a laptop computer were also missing. Mr. Poole described Ed as 5’ 10”, with short black hair and tattoos of boxing gloves and dice on one of his arms. This case remains under investigation (208).

On 21 Jun 10 Lois A. Parsons, age 78, 107 Howard Street, Marietta, reported she was reviewing her electric bill when she discovered suspicious charges.

Sgt. Thorpe contacted AEP as part of his investigation and the company refunded the associated charges. This case remains under investigation.

On 21 Jun 10 Jacqueline Wolfer, age 48, 4072 Tick Ridge Road, Vincent, reported she sent two checks to a local business and the local business did not receive either of them.
