On 12 May 11 Deputy Sheriff Carr requested a summons for Lillie B. Singer, age 51, 11827 State Route 555, Cutler, for falsification and criminal damaging. Less than a week earlier Ms. Singer phoned for help and claimed that her ex-husband entered her bedroom as she slept and stabbed her once in the right thigh. Ms. Singer was inconsistent in her statements about the incident and Deputy Carr found items contradicting her statement in a nearby clothesbasket. Interviewing the alleged suspect and his son, Deputy Carr learned Ms. Singer woke the two at 2 am the same morning after puncturing the tires on and scratching her ex-husband’s recently painted 1966 Dodge Charger.

SYNTHETIC DRUG KNOWN AS “BATH SALTS” CROPPING UP IN
MID-OHIO VALLEY

Sold under names like Ivory Wave, Vanilla Sky, Meow Meow and Bubbles, the synthetic stimulants are sometimes marketed as bath salts, plant food or research chemicals and are commonly marked as “not for human consumption. The light brown or white powdery substance can contain the stimulant mephedrone and the psychoactive drug methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV. While the positive effects of bath salts can include mental clarity, mood lift, euphoria and increased motivation and creativity, poison control centers say negative effects of bath salts are hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure and risk of seizures and kidney dysfunction.

Bath salts have also been blamed in instances around the country of users injuring or killing themselves. A Mississippi man said bath salts led him to slit his own face and stomach repeatedly. The family of a young man in Louisiana says he cut his throat before fatally shooting himself after three days of intermittent delirium. In Pennsylvania, a couple attempted to attack “voices in the wall” and almost slashed their 5-year-old daughter and a man caught burglarizing a house told police he was “chased by electricity.”

Locally, a user intoxicated on bath salts jumped from a second story window and another user high on the drug was arrested after wandering around aimlessly in Beverly and attempting to enter several residences. A day later the suspect still appeared to be high on the drug. Also locally, a Whipple resident attacked his friend with a baseball bat after reportedly hearing voices.

It is currently unknown if the stimulant is available at any local specialty stores but it is available at a number of internet websites.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Michael Ray Lucas Sr., age 42, 751 State Route 83, Beverly, for contempt of a court order, a felony. Lucas was picked up at the Monroe County line by Deputy Sheriff Malone and processed into the Washington County Jail on 12 May 11 at 11:03 am.

Michelle Christine Mace, age 33, 109 Wooster Street, Marietta, for failure to appear, a felony. Mace was arrested in Juvenile Court by Sgt. Spencer of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and processed into the Washington County Jail on 12 May 11 at 2:26 pm.
