On 22 May 11 Deputy Sheriff Mankins issued a citation to Justin M. Caldwell, age 26, 9510 State Route 550, Vincent, for operating a vehicle with license plates that expired in December 2010. Deputy Mankins conducted the traffic stop after observing Mr. Caldwell’s vehicle fishtailing and traveling left of center at the intersection of Veto Road and Barth Road in Dunham Township.

On 22 May 11 a New Matamoras resident reported her granddaughter informed her that she and three other females snorted a white powder at a slumber party the previous evening. Questioned about the incident, the fourteen year old who had the slumber party stated she observed people on television sniffing a powder so she crushed half an aspirin. The teenager stated she removed the ink from a pen and she and the other girls took a turn snorting it through the plastic tube. When Deputy Sheriff Mankins informed the juveniles’ guardians of the details of the incident they declined to pursue the matter further and elected to apply their own discipline.

On 22 May 11 Amy N. Carver, age 33, 124 Buells Circle, Marietta, reported she believes a family member took one of her recently filled prescriptions and disposed of them without her permission. This case remains under investigation (594).

On 22 May 11 emergency room personnel at Camden Clark Hospital reported they were treating a domestic violence victim. At the hospital, the victim, Jessica N. Knapp, age 30, 100 Edmar Avenue, Marietta, informed Deputy Sheriff Reeder that she and her fiancé/live-in boyfriend were sunbathing outside when an argument erupted over their relationship. Ms. Knapp said after the argument ended her fiancé, Joshua L. Thompson, age 28, walked toward their back porch, picked up a flower pot and threw it in her direction. The pot struck Ms. Knapp in the head, causing a laceration that required staples to close it. Fleeing out a back door and into a wooded area when Deputy Carr arrived at the residence, Mr. Thompson later surrendered voluntarily. Mr. Thompson admitted throwing the pot in the air in Ms. Knapp’s direction but claimed he was doing so playfully and did not intend to strike her. Despite his attempt at minimization, Mr. Thompson was arrested for domestic violence and transported to the Washington County Jail.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Luis Torres Jr., age 20, 4154 58th Street, Cleveland, for possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. Torres was arrested on State Route 7 by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and processed into the Washington County Jail on 22 May 11 at 5:43 pm.

Joshua Lee Thompson, age 28, 100 Edmar Avenue, Marietta, for a felony charge of domestic violence and for a misdemeanor charge of failure to appear at a court ordered hearing on unpaid fines. Thompson was arrested in Marietta by Deputy Sheriff Carr and processed into the Washington County Jail on 22 May 11 at 7:48 pm.
