Four days earlier Ms. Carte’s mother, Pat Carte, age 78, 130 Maple Street, Newport, reported she was missing $1,000 from a safe in her bedroom and that she believed her daughter stole it. Questioning Ms. Carte at her residence, Deputy Reeder noticed what appeared to be a new flat panel television and a new window air conditioner. Deputy Reeder later determined Ms. Carte returned $900 to her sister through a third party and that Ms. Carte removed the small safe from her mother’s residence on 3 Jul. A witness stated Ms. Carte took $1,000 from the unlocked safe and returned it to where her mother stored it.

METH LAB DISCOVERED IN MARIETTA, TWO ARRESTED

On 14 Jul 10 Agents with the Major Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at the residence of Cody and Sheena Parker at 114 Groves Street in Marietta. Assisting in the warrant regarding the manufacturing of methamphetamines were the Marietta Fire Department and the Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force.

During the course of their investigation, Agents linked the neighboring home, 116 Grove Street, the residence of David Rexroad, age 34, and Trisha McGee, age 30, to the manufacturing of methamphetamines. Agents obtained permission to search the residence and subsequently discovered evidence supporting the manufacturing of methamphetamines. In addition to the chemical precursors, Agents also recovered quantities of methamphetamine from one suspect and from a trash can in the residence.

While processing the scene one Agent was examining a pile of trash and while doing this he exposed a component used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines. The exposure to another chemical caused a chemical reaction and a small fire ignited. The Agents thereafter extinguished the fire without injury.

As a result of the search warrant, David Rexroad was arrested for manufacturing methamphetamines and Trisha McGee was arrested for the complicity to manufacture methamphetamines. Both offenses are second degree felonies.

Rexroad and McGee remain incarcerated in the Washington County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bond.

DUO ARRESTED FOR MULTIPLE DRUG CHARGES

Acting on anonymous tips, Task Force Agents utilized an undercover operative to purchase ecstasy and heroin from two suspects on Gilman Avenue on 14 Jul 10. During the transaction the operative purchased nine ecstasy pills from Cynthia J. Jerman, age 54, 219 Virginia Street, Marietta, and four unit doses of heroin from John J. Smith, age 27, 1953 Denune Avenue Apt. D, Columbus, for a total of $650. Following the transaction Agents conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle driven by Jerman.

Escorted from the vehicle and searched for weapons, Ms. Jerman produced a rolled dollar bill containing a white powder residue. Ms. Jerman commented that the powder was cocaine and that Mr. Smith gave the cocaine to her as payment for driving him in her vehicle. A further search of Ms. Jerman’s vehicle resulted in the discovery of a fast food bag containing twelve ecstasy pills, 226 grams of marijuana and 1.98 grams of cocaine. Mr. Smith was sitting on top of the paper bag prior to being removed from the passenger side of the vehicle. Task Force Agents recovered the buy money used by the undercover operative and determined Jerman and Smith were equally involved in the trafficking in drugs.

At the conclusion of the traffic stop, Agents arrested Ms. Jerman for a second degree felony charge of trafficking in ecstasy, a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in heroin and a fifth degree felony charge of possession of cocaine. Mr. Smith was arrested for a second degree felony charge of trafficking in ecstasy, a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in heroin, third degree felony charges of possession of cocaine and possession of ecstasy and a fifth degree felony charge of possession of marijuana. The trafficking charges were elevated by one degree due to the fact that the transactions took place within 1,000 feet of a school.

Smith and Jerman are currently incarcerated in the Washington County Jail on respective bonds of $70,000 and $42,500.
