On 13 Apr 11 Sgt. Hornbeck requested a summons for Sampson McDonald, age 34, 1365 Sheets Run Road, Marietta, for assault. Mr. Sampson was babysitting a friend’s eight year old daughter at a residence in Marietta on 4 Apr when he slapped the child across the mouth. Questioned about the incident, Mr. McDonald admitted striking the child because she was being loud and he wanted her to quiet down because his girlfriend had a migraine.

On 13 Apr 11 Curtis M. Wildman, age 69, 1250 Braun Road, Belpre, reported that evening he caught an unknown male and an unknown female attempting to steal scrap metal from outside a vacant residence he owns at 1225 Braun Road. Mr. Wildman said the suspects quickly unloaded the items from the bed of the truck they were using and hastily departed. Taking inventory of items on the property of his late mother, Mr. Wildman believes three pipe racks, an angle iron and other miscellaneous scrap were stolen from the location during the past several days. This case remains under investigation (610).

On 13 Apr 11 Matthew S. Spindler, age 35, 14430 state Route 60, Beverly, reported a witness informed him that two unknown males were disposing of what appeared to be old garage doors on his property. Briefly confronting the suspects, Mr. Spindler said the suspects told them they received permission from a relative to dispose of the junk at the location. Mr. Spindler said the two fled when he returned to his residence to verify their story but they later returned and were cleaning up the debris. Questioned by Deputy Sheriff Simmons, one of the suspects stated he believed they were disposing of the trash on his uncle’s property. This case remains under investigation.

On 13 Apr 11 Sgt. Underwood and Deputy Sheriff Anderson responded to the scene of a domestic dispute at the residence of Stanley L. Barker, age 53, at 14761 State Route 555, Cutler. The Deputies concluded no act of domestic violence occurred but discovered that Mr. Barker was in possession of two firearms that he is not legally permitted to possess. Additionally, the Deputies found a baggie of white powder that field tested positive for cocaine. Based on their investigation, Deputy Anderson will be submitting a grand jury brief supporting charges of possession of cocaine and being in possession while under disability for Mr. Barker.
