FUGITIVE ARRESTED IN MARIETTA

Aided by the Sheriff’s Office’s Special Response Team, the Major Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at the residence of Monica L. Moening, age 27, at 121 E. Spring Street, Marietta, on 27 Feb 12. Task Force Agents obtained information that a fugitive wanted in Summit County for felony drug possession frequented the residence. The fugitive, Torrey T. Swain, age 31, 428 Crestwood Avenue, Akron, was located in the home and arrested without incident.

Under questioning, Ms. Moening admitted knowing that Mr. Swain had an active warrant and said he stayed at her residence intermittently for the past three weeks. Despite the fact that Agents observed marijuana on a dining room table, cocaine in kitchen cabinets, and unidentified pills in a kitchen drawer and a kitchen pantry, Ms. Moening denied knowing that Mr. Swain had any narcotics in the house. All of the narcotics were easily accessible to the four year old child in the home and visible in plain sight. Consequently, Ms. Moening was arrested on a fifth degree felony charge of obstruction of justice and a misdemeanor charge of child endangering.

While Mr. Swain is being held pending transportation to Summit County, Ms. Moening is being held without bond pending her initial court appearance.
