On 1 Sep 11 Clifton Blosser, age 72, 43 First
Street, New Matamoras, reported while his wife was asleep on
20 Aug he believes an unknown suspect(s) entered his home and
stole two handguns off his dresser. Mr. Blosser said he initially
was not going to report the weapons stolen but was afraid they
may be used to harm someone. This case remains under investigation
On 1 Sep 11 Deputy Sheriff Anderson requested
a summons for Christopher N. Mayle, age 32, 2450 Two Mile Run
Road, Cutler, for possession of drugs. Mr. Mayle’s father
reported his son was extremely intoxicated on an unknown narcotic
and came to his home demanding money. A brief scuffle followed
but ended after Mr. Mayle’s mother agreed to give him
some money. Mr. Mayle subsequently became disoriented and unresponsive
due to the ingestion of a large quantity of drugs. The Wesley
Fire Department responded to the home and transported Mr. Mayle
to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment. Deputy Anderson
identified pills found in Mr. Mayle’s possession as Xanax.
On 1 Sep 11 Ralph T. Arthur, age 55, 193 Hannah
Road, Mineral Wells, reported he was bulldozing around a vacant
home he owns at 1775 Patten Mills Road, Stockport, when he noticed
items missing from the home. Mr. Arthur said an unknown suspect(s)
removed the copper pipes and electrical wiring out of the basement,
cut the cords of electronics items and stole a number of hand
tools. Returning to bulldozing, Mr. Arthur said a while later
he saw smoke emanating from his home and that it was on fire.
The Stockport and Wesley Fire Departments responded and extinguished
the fire. The fire decimated the home, leaving only the chimney
standing. Contacted by Deputy Sheriff Anderson, a fire marshal
said the cause was likely accidental due to the fact that power
was running to the home and there were severed electrical wires.
The burglary remains under investigation.
