On 5 Aug 10 an employee of Ohio Valley Builders, 347 Gravel Bank Road, Marietta, reported at some point during the past week an unknown suspect(s) forcibly entered three buildings at the business. From the three buildings and an open shed the suspect(s) stole 500 feet of aluminum cable and a total of 1,000 feet of welding lead cable. The estimated loss due to theft is $3,120. This case remains under investigation (296).

On 5 Aug 10 a motorist reported noticing miscellaneous trash lying along Sealy Ridge Road approximately a half mile north of School House Road in Decatur Township. The discarded rubbish includes mattresses and documents with identifying information. However, Deputy Sheriff Rhodes determined the suspects have since moved from the address on the documents. This case remains under investigation.

On 5 Aug 10 Deputy Sheriff Lockhart requested warrants for Donald E. Bartimus Jr., age 30, 1305 Market Street, Parkersburg, for theft and breaking and entering and Katherine L. Buchanan, age 29, same address, for theft, for complicity in breaking and entering and child endangerment. Identified as a suspect and under interrogation, Mr. Bartimus admitted to Deputy Lockhart that he forcibly entered Ohio Valley Building Supply, 347 Gravel Bank Road, Marietta, around 3:30 am. While he was inside the building cutting $3,100 worth of various wire, Mr. Bartimus said Ms. Buchanan was driving her van back and forth on Gravel Bank Road, waiting to pick him up. Ms. Buchanan confirmed Mr. Bartimus’ statement and commented that she was eating Xanax pills as she drove the van also occupied by her three year old child. At one point during the crime Ms. Bartimus stated she was so intoxicated she ended up in Marietta and had no idea how she arrived there.

On 5 Aug 10 Paul Newbanks, age 52, 7923 Veto Road, Belpre, reported his daughter’s husband, Jeremy Charlton, age 30, 1681 Sealy Ridge Road, Vincent, appeared outside his home at 12:30 am and would not leave despite being asked several times. Mr. Newbanks said he previously warned Mr. Charlton not to come onto his property and that Mr. Charlton began shouting profanities at him. Walking onto the home’s porch, Mr. Charlton head butted Mr. Newbanks and knocked him to the ground. Mr. Newbanks reached for a pipe to defend himself after he stood up and Mr. Charlton punched him in the face, again knocking him to the ground. The two wrestled briefly before Mr. Newbanks was able to escape and seek refuge in his home. Viewing Mr. Newbanks’ injuries, Deputy Sheriff Lockhart arrested Mr. Charlton for aggravated trespassing and assault and transported him to the Washington County Jail.
