On 21 Nov 10 the Little Hocking Fire Department transported Steve Smith, age 59, 230 Hanover Road, Cutler, to Saint Joseph’s Hospital for treatment to a head injury. Mr. Smith was highly intoxicated and was unsure what happened but it appears he stumbled while walking on the steps of his front porch. Deputy Sheriff Mankins will attempt to clarify the afternoon’s events and interview Mr. Smith when he becomes sober.

On 21 Nov 10 Sgt. Hornbeck was on patrol around 5 am when he noticed a male subject lying face down on the sidewalk near 125 Putnam Street. Found next to a pool of vomit, the suspect stated his name was “1, 2, 3, 4, 5.” Asked where he lived, the suspect again replied “1, 2, 3, 4, 5.” Eventually Sgt. Hornbeck identified the intoxicated subject as Anthony R. Fulton, age 20, 214 Wooster Street, Marietta. As a result of the encounter, Sgt. Hornbeck arrested Mr. Fulton for disorderly conduct by intoxication and underage consumption of alcohol and transported him to the Washington County Jail.

On 21 Nov 10 John R. Lipscomb, age 32, 218 Fourth Street, Lowell, reported at some point during the past eleven days an unknown suspect(s) stole an air compressor from next to his driveway. This case remains under investigation (1184).

On 21 Nov 10 Beth Lockhart, age 47, 911 Fairview Avenue, Parkersburg, reported she owns a camper parked at Blennerhassett RV Park and when she visited the camper that morning she noticed a burnt smell. Initially Ms. Lockhart didn’t observe any damage but she later saw burn marks around the frame of the bathroom door. It appears the fire originated around a light fixture in the bathroom and was possibly caused by faulty wiring (610).

On 21 Nov 10 Deputy Sheriff Lockhart arrested Richard L. McElfresh, age 51, 504 Walnut Street, Belpre, for OVI and for operating a vehicle with an expired license. Investigating a report that Mr. McElfresh stole a bag of aluminum cans from a Vincent resident, Deputy Lockhart conducted a traffic stop on Mr. McElfresh’s vehicle on Main Street in Belpre. Deputy Lockhart noticed Mr. McElfresh had an odor of alcohol and glassy, bloodshot eyes. Though he claims he only drank a few beers, Mr. McElfresh performed poorly on field sobriety tests. At the Washington County Jail Mr. McElfresh tested .186 BAC.

MULTI-AGENCY METH LAB BUST

On 21 Nov 10 Agents with the Major Crimes Task Force assisted the Woodsfield Police Department and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in the execution of a search warrant at 342 Guilford Avenue in Woodsfield, OH.

During a search warrant conducted on Ridge Street in Marietta on 17 Aug 10, Task Force Agents obtained information that they forwarded to officers in Monroe County. The ensuing investigation by law enforcement in that jurisdiction resulted in the execution of a search warrant for the manufacturing of methamphetamine earlier today.

Task Force Agents assisted with the execution of the search warrant and discovered a number of key ingredients used in the manufacturing of meth. They were also able to ascertain that methamphetamines were being consumed and manufactured at the residence on Guilford Avenue. At the conclusion of the search warrant the home’s three residents, William B. Kinison, age 32, Gara B. Rogers, age 39, and Terry Kinison, age 54, were arrested by the Woodsfield Police Department for illegally assembling drug making chemicals.

Additionally, Agents learned of a possible meth manufacturing site at Terry Kinison's property in Belmont County, OH. Agents then assisted the Belmont County Sheriff's Office with the processing of the campers that were located on the property. Agents were again able to find key ingredients used in the manufacturing of meth and indicators that show they were cooking meth on that property.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Darlene Denice Britton, age 40, 100 Sacra Via, Marietta, for disorderly conduct by intoxication, a misdemeanor. Britton was arrested at her residence by Patrolman McCracken of the Marietta City Police Department and processed into the Washington County Jail on 21 Nov 10 at 2:01 am.
